No shear line, no low pressure area

Weather specialist Obet Badrina explained due to the absence of the shear line and low-pressure area within the Philippine area of responsibility, Filipinos may expect fair weather, with some scattered rainfall in the afternoon and in the evening.

“Dahil diyan, makararanas tayo ng generally fair weather,” he said.

(Because of that, we will experience generally fair weather.)

“Sa mga kababayan natin sa Visayas, inaasahan natin ang generally fair weather,” he reported.

(To our countrymen in Visayas, we anticipate generally fair weather.)

“Posibleng medyo mainit pa rin sa umaga at tanghali, habang malaki ang tyansa ng pag-ulan sa hapon hanggang sa gabi dahil sa localized thunderstorms,” Badrina added.

(It’s possible it will still be warm in the morning and noon, while there’s a high chance of rain in the afternoon until the evening due to localized thunderstorms.)

Meanwhile, a huge part of Mindanao is forecast to experience isolated rain showers and thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms.

Due to amihan, Pagasa issued a gale warning over the seaboards in the following areas:


Ilocos Norte

Cagayan including Babuyan Islands


“As much as possible, avoid sailing or going out to sea in these parts of the country because we expect the seas to be very rough due to the northeast monsoon,” Badrina said in Filipino.
