Ten-Day Regional Agri-Weather Information

DECADE NO. 5  FEBRUARY 11- 20, 2017


The weather systems that will affect the country are northeast monsoon, tail-end of a cold front, and low pressure area (LPA).

During the early days of the forecast period, the regions of Eastern Visayas, CARAGA and Davao will experience rains and isolated thunderstorms while the regions of Ilocos, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon and Bicol will have light rains. The LPA is expected to bring rains and isolated thunderstorms over Mindanao, Visayas and MIMAROPA at the midst of the decadal period. After that, the provinces of Aurora, Laguna and Quezon, and the regions of Cagayan Valley, Bicol, Eastern Visayas and CARAGA will experience rains and thunderstorms. The rest of Luzon will have light rains while the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains.

Moderate to strong northeasterly winds will blow over the whole country during the first half of the ten-day period. Afterwards, Luzon will gradually have moderate to strong winds coming from northeast to east while the rest of the country will have light to moderate winds coming from the east.

The seaboards of the whole country will be moderate to rough during the first half of the forecast period. After that, the coastal waters over Luzon will be moderate to rough while the rest of the country will have slight to moderate seas.

The eastern and central equatorial Pacific is in neutral condition.

                                        SEASONAL CLIMATE OUTLOOK
                                             JANUARY - JUNE 2017


Oceanic and atmospheric indicators had reached weak La Niña levels in October 2016 (PAGASA termed as borderline La Nina), but this was not sustained. However, La Niña-like conditions continue, as impacts have been seen in some flood- and landslide-prone areas in the country. A transition to El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO)-neutral condition is expected to occur by February 2017 which will likely continue until June 2017.

January — March 2017

The period is the peak of the Northeast (NE) monsoon season, locally known as "Amihan". Tropical cyclone activity is however at its minimum. Weather systems that may affect the country are the NE monsoon, tail-end of a cold front, trough of low pressure areas (LPAs), Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), easterlies, ridge of high pressure area (HPA) and one (1) or two (2) tropical cyclones that are likely to develop/enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

Surface air temperatures are expected to be slightly cooler than average in mountainous Luzon while slightly warmer than average over the rest of the country. Surges of cold temperature are also expected during the season (January to February).

Rainfall outlook for January to March 2017 indicates that most parts of the country will likely experience near to above normal rainfall conditions. Impacts of La Nifia-like conditions will still prevail that may potentially trigger floods/flashfloods and landslides over vulnerable areas and storm surges over vulnerable coastal communities. Gradual weakening of the NE monsoon may begin towards the end of February or early March.

April to June 2017

The period covers the gradual shift of the season from NE monsoon to Southwest (SW) monsoon. The weather systems that may affect the country are the easterlies, ridge of high pressure area (HPA), ITCZ, LPAs, SW monsoon and two (2) to four (4) tropical cyclones. Warmer than average surface air temperatures are also expected during the season.

The month of April signals the transition towards the SW monsoon season. Significant changes in rainfall pattern will be observed as the normal onset of the rainy season is expected to commence by the second half of May to early June for areas under Climate Type I (western section of the country).

In general, near normal rainfall conditions are expected during the period.

PAGASA will continue to closely monitor these conditions and regular updates and advisories shall be issued as appropriate. Meanwhile, concerned agencies are advised to take precautionary measures to mitigate the potential adverse impacts of La Nina-like conditions.
