The easterlies, or warm and humid winds coming from the Pacific Ocean, will bring warm weather across the country this weekend, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Saturday, March 27.


The warm weather may persist, especially from noon until afternoon, PAGASA weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio said during its daily weather forecast.

Based on the PAGASA’s extended weather outlook for key areas from March 28-31, maximum air temperatures will be 33-34 degrees Celsius in Metro Manila, 33-34 degrees Celsius in Tuguegarao City, 25-26 degrees Celsius in Baguio City, 31 degrees Celsius in Tagaytay City, 32-33 degrees Celsius in Puerto Princesa City, 32 degrees Celsius in Metro Cebu, and 31-34 degrees Celsius in Metro Davao.

While dry season has officially started, isolated rain showers may still occur from late afternoon until evening, which could sometimes trigger flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.

Moreover, PAGASA has not issued a gale warning on Saturday morning as sea conditions over extreme northern Luzon will be moderate to rough, while it will be slight to moderate over the rest of the country.

Seafarers and fisherfolk are safe to sail but were still advised to observe caution when venturing out to sea.
