Solon seeks PAGASA modernization

MANILA – According to the state-run weather agency, at least four weather systems – shear line, northeast monsoon, easterlies, and localized thunderstorms – will impact most areas of the country in the next 24 hours.

PAGASA weather specialist Robert Badrina stated that the combined influence of the shear line and easterlies is resulting in overcast skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Eastern Visayas, Capiz, Aklan, Iloilo, the Bicol Region, and Romblon.

The PAGASA forecaster noted that the northeast monsoon, also known as “amihan,” is impacting Metro Manila and the entirety of Luzon, where cloudy skies with isolated light rains may prevail.

“It would still be colder nights and mornings, especially over Luzon in the coming days due to amihan,” he said.

Referring to Pagasa’s data and analysis, he mentioned that there have been no tropical cyclones or low-pressure areas detected within or outside the country’s area of responsibility until the weekend.

The state weather bureau further indicated that the easterlies, coupled with localized thunderstorms, are causing isolated heavy rains or thunderstorms across the rest of the country.
