No storm expected over the weekend

(UPDATE) THE Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said on Friday that it has not monitored any weather disturbance until over the weekend.

Pagasa weather specialist Grace Castañeda told The Manila Times that only two weather systems — the shear line and northeast monsoon or 'amihan' — are affecting most parts of the country.


“Based on our monitoring, no weather disturbance would enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility at least until over the weekend,” she said.

The Pagasa forecaster said it is the shear line, the point where the cold and warm air converges, that is bringing rain over the eastern sections of Southern Luzon and the Visayas.

In particular, the state-run weather agency said the weather system is affecting the Bicol Region, Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan), the Visayas, Caraga and Quezon.

Cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms may be experienced in these areas.

Pagasa said amihan, on one hand, may bring cloudy skies with rains over Metro Manila, Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, the rest of Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon), Aurora, Nueva Ecija and Bulacan.

The northeast monsoon is also affecting the rest of Luzon where partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains may prevail.

The rest of Mindanao may also have partly cloudy to cloudy skies, with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over the next 24 hours.
