Ten-Day Regional Agri-Weather Information

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.

The eastern and central equatorial Pacific is in neutral condition.

Ceremonial Turn-over of JICA funded

Aparri and Guiuan Radar Stations
PAGASA Weather and Flood Forecasting Center (WFFC)
Agham Road, Diliman, Quezon City

Background:

In May 2006, the DOST-PAGASA submitted a project proposal to the Government of Japan through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) on the upgrading of its weather radar systems to a state-of–the-art Doppler radars. This is in line with the fulfillment of its vision and mission of protecting lives and properties through monitoring tropical cyclone, monsoons and other severe weather disturbances. These hazards cause devastating floods and landslides that result to loss of lives and enormous damage to properties and disruption of important economic activities. It is therefore imperative to establish a reliable and timely dissemination of tropical cyclone warning signal and other weather related information to the public and disaster risk reduction concerned agencies.

The old networks of weather surveillance radars of PAGASA were acquired and installed about 20 years ago and had already exceeded their life span and have structurally deteriorated. These were primarily used for tropical cyclone detection and do not had capability to provide small spatial and temporal scales estimates of accumulated rainfall amount as well as rainfall and wind velocity measurements which are the salient features of Doppler weather radars. The Doppler radars will definitely improve the public service delivery of the DOST-PAGASA.

In November to December 2007, JICA had dispatched technical experts and consultants to the Philippines and conducted the Preliminary Study of the “Project for the Improvement of Meteorological Radar Systems in the Philippines” Subsequently, the project was approved and implemented in July 2010 with the main objective to upgrade the observational capability of weather radar network of PAGASA for monitoring and now-casting of weather related disturbances such as typhoons, monsoon surges, easterly waves and local thunderstorms. Specifically, it aims to establish Doppler radar stations at Virac (Catanduanes), Aparri (Cagayan), and Guiuan (Eastern Samar); and develop short-range forecasting/now-casting system for Cagayan and Northern Luzon, Catanduanes and Bicol regional and Samar/Leyte area.

The said project was completed in September 2013.

The completion of the project contributes to the improved accuracy of forecast and the timeliness of warnings that minimize human casualties and damages to properties due to the occurrence of weather disturbances and the associated floods and landslides.

The ceremonial turnover activity will include project overview, unveiling of the marker and live streaming/video presentation from Aparri and Guiuan Radar Stations.
