3-Day Forecast (Mar. 20)

PAGASA has officially declared that the summer season has arrived in the Philippines. The country should experience a gradual increase in temperature in the coming weeks, along with lack of rainfall. For now, though, we are still watching a couple of weather systems that could affect the weather in the country. The first one is a low pressure area is heading towards Southern Philippines likely bringing some rains in the region. The other system is a stationary front currently over China; this is forecast to move southeastward and could enhance rains over parts of Northern Luzon tomorrow.

Invest 99W is not forecast to develop into a cyclone. However, it could bring scattered rains for Mindanao tomorrow, spreading into Visayas by Friday. This LPA is embedded along the ITCZ which could increase the chance of precipitation across the country this weekend.

3-Day Weather Forecast (NOT OFFICIAL!)

Much of the country will have warm weather with partly cloudy skies and occasional chance for rain showers and thunderstorms. Northern Luzon could see some rains tomorrow and on Friday due to the stationary front. Southern Luzon should have partly cloudy weather although chances of rain increase by Friday and Saturday.

The LPA could bring rains across Mindanao tomorrow and could spread into Visayas. The ITCZ is also forecast to enhance rains across the same region beginning Friday.

We'll have another update on March 23, Saturday.
