Easterlies to bring rain showers across PH


The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Sunday, Dec. 4, said the easterlies will be the dominant weather system that may bring isolated rain showers and thunderstorms throughout the archipelago.

In the next 24 hours, the country, particularly in the eastern part, may experience partly cloudy to cloudy weather with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to the easterlies and localized thunderstorms.

Easterlies are warm winds coming from the Pacific Ocean.

The public is advised to be vigilant against possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms, which are often accompanied by sudden heavy rains, lightning, thunder, gusts of wind, and sometimes hail.

PAGASA weather specialist Benison Estareja said they have not seen any weather disturbance that could affect the country in the next few days.

Moreover, no gale warning is currently raised over any of the country's seaboards, as the sea will be moderate to rough over Luzon and light to moderate over the rest of the country.

Small boats and other sea vessels are safe to sail.
