Philippines 3-Day Forecast | February 13, 2012

Widespread rains over the Philippines have, for the most part, died down today. However, we are still seeing some light to moderate rains over Central and Northern Luzon today. We aren’t expecting anything more than 50mm here and rains should begin to taper off later tonight and into tomorrow. Still, continuous rains over mountainous regions (around Cordilleras) do bring the possibility for landslides. There are also some thunderstorms seen on the satellite images across Western Mindanao and Central and Western Visayas areas.  Depending on the duration and intensity, some areas here could receive 50 to 80mm of rain overnight.

Tomorrow should be quieter for much of the Philippines. However, another batch of widespread rains is forecast to arrive as early as tomorrow evening. This is associated with yet another developing low pressure area spotted near Palau. While this disturbance has a low chance of developing, it could bring another round of moderate to heavy rainfall across Eastern and Central Visayas Regions. As mentioned, it could arrive as early as late tomorrow affecting Eastern Visayas and Northern Mindanao. Then by Wednesday, rains should affect more areas in  the region. Models are also showing precipitation to spread into Southern and Central Luzon beginning Wednesday night and continuing into Thursday.

I’ll have my next update on Thursday although be sure to continue checking the site for continuous updates on the region’s weather, especially if this LPA does develop.
