DEKAD NO. 6  FEBRUARY 21- 28, 2017

PHILIPPINE AGRI-WEATHER FORECAST

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

The whole country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains or thunderstorms during the early days of the forecast period. After this, Mindanao and the regions of MIMAROPA, Eastern Visayas and Central Visayas will have light to moderate rains and thunderstorms. The regions of Cagayan Valley, Ilocos, CAR, Central Luzon and Bicol will experience cloudiness which may bring rains or thunderstorms at the midst of the forecast period up to the latter part of the dekad. The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.

Light to moderate winds will blow from east to southeast over Luzon during the early days of the dekadal period. After this, gradual shift to northeasterly direction of moderate to strong winds will prevail over Luzon. The rest of the country will have winds coming from east to northeast.

During the early days of the forecast period, the seaboards of the whole country will be slight to moderate. The coastal waters of Luzon will be moderate to rough at the midst of the forecast period. This will take place up to the latter part of the dekad. The rest of the country will have slight to moderate seas.

  1. SYNOP (Surface Synoptic Station) - A station where observation of almost all meteorological elements are made at fixed observation times and are transmitted to the Central Office. These stations are maintained and operated by PAGASA. It is responsible for the dissemination of public weather forecasts, tropical cyclone bulletins, warnings and advisories and other related information to protect the lives and property of the general populace.

  2. UPPER-AIR - Normally combined with a synoptic station, conducts observation of atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity, or wind speed and direction or a combination of all of these variables at several layers of the upper atmosphere using electronic means. International weather data exchange commitments require these stations to conduct at least two observations daily (0000 UT; 1200 UT), notwithstanding the high costs of electronic transmitters, Meteorological balloons and other consumables used during every observation.

  3. RADAR STATION - A station where a Doppler weather radar is installed. It could be a combined synoptic-radar station or an independent (purely) radar station. Radar stations conduct regular observations twice a day at 2:00 AM and 2:00 PM. However, if there is an existing tropical cyclone within the "Philippine Area of Responsibility" (PAR) all radar stations may be required to observe on a 24-hour basis, dependent on the proximity of the station to the tropical cyclone or the effective range of the radar itself, and transmit their radar report every hour or every 30 minutes, if possible, to Central Office.

  4. AGROMET (Agrometeorological Station) - This station gathers and provides on routine basis simultaneous meteorological and biological information. It is also responsible for the dissemination of agricultural meteorological advice, warning, forecast, bulletin and other important information needed by farmers.

  5. OFFICIAL RAIN (OR) - It is a station where rainfall observations are made twice daily. It is maintained and operated by PAGASA, and manned by at least a Weather Observation Aide (Part-Time).

  6. COOPERATIVE RAIN (CR) - A rain station operated by a cooperating agency. Instruments and supplies are shouldered by PAGASA, while the station site and other services by the cooperating agency. Monthly weather observation reports are submitted to PAGASA.

  7. OFFICIAL CLIMAT (Official Climatological Station) - A station where daily observation of temperature at 8:00 A.M. and rainfall observations at 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Are conducted. It is maintained and operated by PAGASA, and manned by at least a Weather Observation Aide (Part-Time)

  8. COOPERATIVE CLIMAT (Cooperative Climatological Station) - A Climatological station operated by a cooperating agency. Meteorological instruments and supplies are supplied by PAGASA, while the station site and other services by the cooperating agency. Monthly weather observation reports are submitted to PAGASA.

  9. PMO (Port Meteorological Office) - A coastal synoptic station with a Port Meteorological Liaison Officer (PMLO). One of the services offered is inspection and calibration of meteorological instruments on board ships and retrieval of marine weather observation data.

  10. AIRPORT - A synoptic station located at airports that give weather data, information and advice for aviation activities.

  11. HYDRO (Hydrometeorological Station) - A station that observes meteorological and hydrological elements. It is operated and maintained by PAGASA or jointly with a cooperating agency.

  12. EVAP (Evaporation Station) - A station which observes evaporation on a routine basis. It could be a synoptic station or climatological station equipped with an evaporation pan.
