A complex weather setup continues to dominate the Philippines today due to a combination of factors. For starters a tropical trough is lingering over Mindanao bringing heavy rain to the southern Island of the Philippines.
Fueling up this trough is cool air aloft due to a cold surge that has been bringing the coldest air of the season to the Northern Philippines this past week. There has even been reports of frost in the rural foothills of northern Luzon.
Good news this foul weather pattern should end through the weekend with temperatures across Luzon getting back to normal and the trough in the south tapering off.
