The country will start the month of March with warm weather conditions with chances of isolated rain showers due to the prevailing easterlies, the state weather bureau said Sunday, Feb. 28.


The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the easterlies remain the dominant weather system that affects country, bringing humid air from the Pacific.

“There is also a chance of isolated rain showers in the afternoon or in the  evening … especially in the eastern portion of the country,” said weather specialist Loriedin De La Cruz.

PAGASA said the easterlies will continue to affect southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

No weather disturbance will also affect the country in the next two to three days.

“There are no typhoons currently being monitored within our area of responsibility and no weather disturbance will affect the country at least in the next two to three days,” De La Cruz said.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country may experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to the easterlies.
