Fair weather continues except in southern Mindanao


Fair weather continues in most parts of the country except southern Mindanao on Tuesday, according to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Alvin Pura said that a high-pressure area (HPA) is the opposite of a low pressure area and that brings warm and humid weather in the country during summer.

Pura explained that Luzon was experiencing a heat surge because of the ridge of a high pressure area extending over Luzon.

Pura said the rest of the countryincluding Metro Manila will continue to have sunny to partly cloudy skies with possible isolated rains in the afternoon or evening due to evaporation or localized convection.

Pura said in an interview that in the next three days they expect the country to be storm-free.

He said that PAGASA is not seeing any weather disturbance near the Philippines territory that may intensify into a cyclone.

However, he noted that some parts of Mindanao will be spared from warm weather as cloudy with light rains will continue to prevail in southern Mindanao because of the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ).

He said the ITCZ will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains in the region of Caraga and Zamboanga Peninsula.

In its advisory, PAGASA said that light to moderate winds blowing from the east to southeast will prevail throughout the archipelago and the coastal waters will be slight to moderate. PNA
