Except for partly cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms, Filipinos may have to brace for a warm start to December, state weather forecasters hinted Tuesday.
The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration also said a frontal system may bring rain to extreme northern Luzon.
“Mainit at maaliwalas na panahon ang ating inaasahan sa kalakhang bahagi ng ating bansa kasama ang Metro Manila. Wala tayong anumang weather system na makakaapekto sa kalagayan ng ating panahon,” PAGASA forecaster Sonny Pajarilla said in an interview on dZBB radio.
In Metro Manila, he said the temperature range may be between 24 and 33 degrees Celsius for Tuesday.
But he said extreme northern Luzon may experience rain due to a frontal system, a weather system involving one or more fronts.
On the other hand, PAGASA’s extended weather forecast until December 3 indicated temperatures may go up anew until Saturday.
The extended forecast indicated the temperature range until December 3 will be between 24 and 33 degrees Celsius.
In contrast, PAGASA’s earlier extended forecasts had indicated maximum temperatures in Metro Manila may go down to 31 degrees starting December 1.
PAGASA’s 5 a.m. bulletin said extreme northern Luzon will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered light rain and isolated thunderstorms.
The rest of the country will be partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms. Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough, it added.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas. — RSJ, GMA News
