Philippine Weather Forecast March 2013

The country will experience generally good weather condition with clear skies in the next three days, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Monday.

Weather forecaster Jori Loiz said they do not see any tropical cyclone that may affect the country in the next two to three days.

"We expect good weather and most of the times, skies will be generally clear," Loiz said.

He added that the dominant weather system in the country for the next two to three days will be the easterlies or the wind coming from the east affecting the eastern part of Luzon and Visayas.

Aside from being "warm," Loiz said that easterlies are also "rich in moisture" and this "warm, moist winds" are expected to bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms in the provinces of Aurora and Quezon, Bicol region and Eastern Visayas.

The rest of the country including Metro Manila, Loiz noted, will have sunny to partly cloudy skies with brief light rains in the afternoon or evening.

He added that the chance for tropical cyclone for the month of March will be zero to one.

Meanwhile, Loiz added that they cannot consider that it is already summer because they are still analyzing data.

He also said that the weakened northeast monsoon or hangin amihan is still lingering in western part of Luzon.

For the next two to three days, Loiz said that temperature in Metro Manila is expected to range from 24 to 32 degrees Celsius.

PAGASA also said that moderate to strong winds blowing from the east will prevail over the eastern sections of Luzon and Visayas. The coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas.
