Philippines Forecast | January 17, 2012

We are seeing a quieter weather pattern today for the Philippines with only isolated thunderstorms to worry about for the meantime. However, a wave of energy is bringing scattered showers across the Western Micronesia area, particularly near Palau. This may affect Southern Philippines within the next two days. For the weather across Asia, please watch Rob’s video update in the separate post.

Have low confidence on current forecast due to the volatility of these energies that linger in the Pacific. Usually they weaken and scatter before reaching Mindanao. For now, left a 40% chance for Davao and much of Eastern Mindanao. However, as the convergence nears, we expect on and off showers for the region. As the cold front digs southward, converging NE and E winds could fire off some rain showers for Eastern Visayas; not expecting to affect much of the region though. Fair conditions are allowing temperatures to climb into the 30-degree mark today in some parts of Southern Philippines, we expect same scenario for tomorrow. Northern Luzon will see cooler temperatures due to fresh NE winds as the High Pressure rebuilds near China. Less chances of precipitation in these parts although there could still be scattered light rains due to that surge of NE winds.

Again the main concern is the ITCZ so we’ll continue updating you for any sudden changes on our forecast. ’til then, stay safe!
