The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Thursday said warm and humid weather would continue to prevail in the whole country.
PAGASA weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said a ridge of high pressure area (HPA) continues to be the dominant weather system thus the warm weather in Luzon and Visayas.
He explained that Luzon and Visayas are experiencing a heat surge because of the ridge of a high pressure area. A high-pressure area brings dry and warm winds.
To avoid heat exhaustion, people should stay indoors as much as possible, Aurelio said.
However, isolated thunderstorms and rainshowers are expected mostly in the afternoon or evening.
He explained that the convective activity brought about by intense heat triggers the formation of more cumulonimbus clouds or dark clouds associated with thunderstorms that bring rains.
He further noted that no tropical cyclone is expected to affect the country within the next two to three days.
Aurelio said the HPA will bring high temperatures and good weather conditions in the coming days.
He said PAGASA is not seeing any weather disturbance near the Philippine territory that may intensify into a cyclone until weekend.
For Thursday forecast, Aurelio said that the entire archipelago would experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.
Metro Manila temperature will be range from 25-36 degrees Celsius for Thursday.
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
