Philippines Forecast | January 20, 2012

Mainly quiet weather for the Philippines today with only isolated thunderstorms being observed on the satellite. Our attention, however, turns to a pretty vigorous tropical wave near Palau. Latest satellite images show widespread convective activity. A quick look at the ASCAT data also suggests a weak circulation along the trough. While chances of development are slim, this batch of showers could potentially bring widespread rains across Mindanao come Monday.

For tomorrow though, mostly fair weather for much of the country. Temperatures will climb into the low to mid 30s by afternoon; watch out for isolated thunderstorms. Breezy conditions will exist along the Northern and Eastern sections of the country as fresh winds originate from the north. As showers arrive, cloud cover will increase for Mindanao and some parts of Visayas which would likely cap the temperatures to around 28-30C. Based on computer models, areas likely to get rain within the next 48 hours would be along the Eastern Mindanao, including Davao. Some scattered showers for Eastern Visayas as well but not a cause for concern.
