The country may experience fair weather in the coming days due to the prevailing easterlies, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.


In its morning weather update on Thursday, March 18, the easterlies will prevail in the country, bringing humid winds from the Pacific and may cause isolated thunderstorms particularly in the eastern section of the country.

Weather specialist Shelly Ignacio said most parts of the country, including Metro Manila, may experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to the easterlies.

“Magiging maganda po ang taya ng ating panahon sa mga susunod na araw (Our weather will be fair in the coming days),” Ignacio said.

“Pero asahan po natin mainit at maalinsangan and then may mga severe thunderstorm po tayo na inaasahan lalong lalo na po sa hapon (But we expect hot and humid weather and then we will have severe thunderstorms especially in the afternoon),” she added.

Ignacio said no weather disturbance will affect the country in the next two to three days.

As of Thursday morning, PAGASA has not issued a gale warning, meaning that fishing boats and other small sea craft are allowed to venture out into the sea.
