As we have mentioned 3-days ago, we’re now seeing widespread rains moving into Eastern Philippines and will likely continue bringing rains for the next 2 or 3 days. You can read more about this on Rob’s update posted earlier today. My post will concern mostly the 3-day forecast for specific cities in the Philippines.
I’ve decided to side with the GFS with this forecast since it has been good with the extent of the precipitation so far. Therefore, looking at rains to continue overspreading Central and Eastern Visayas regions, bringing amounts of anywhere between 50 to 100mm. Unfortunately, this long batch of showers that extend all the way south of Guam looks to be headed towards this region so with that said, there could be some landslides and widespread flooding–very bad news for the places that just got hit by that 6.7 earthquake last week.
As for Luzon, the region will remain mostly dry for tomorrow although chances for rain will increase as the weekend goes on. Models do bring the rains from the south northward, eventually reaching Baguio and the Cordilleras by Monday. Same goes for Mindanao–much of the rain is situated across Northern Mindanao and the Southern and Western areas are only seeing scattered light rains and partly cloudy skies. However, the next batch of rain might come in on Monday and that could be south enough to affect the majority of Mindanao.
