The country will remain cyclone-free for the next two to three days as there is no impending low pressure area or tropical cyclone that may form or affect the country, a weather forecaster said on Tuesday, April 6.


Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather specialist Meno Mendoza said the northeasterly wind flow remains the dominant weather system that will affect Luzon and Visayas.

Mendoza pointed out that warm and humid weather conditions may prevail across the country in the next 24 hours.

As of Tuesday, the northeasterly surface wind flow may bring isolated light rains in Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, and Aurora.

It will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated light rains over Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, and Visayas.

The northeasterly wind flow is not expected to bring significant impact over Luzon and Visayas.

Meanwhile, Mindanao will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.

PAGASA warned that severe thunderstorm activity may occur in the afternoon or evening that could trigger flash floods over low-lying areas or landslides in mountainous communities.

Based on its extended weather outlook for key areas from April 7 to April 10, PAGASA said that maximum air temperatures may reach 34 degrees Celsius in Metro Manila, 34-35 degrees Celsius in Tuguegarao City, 24-25 degrees Celsius in Baguio City, 29-30 degrees Celsius in Tagaytay City, 32-33 degrees Celsius in Puerto Princesa City, 31-32 degrees Celsius in Metro Cebu, 34 degrees Celsius in Metro Davao, and 34-35 degrees Celsius in Zamboanga City.
