It's a rainy New Year in the Philippines


Most parts of the country will experience rains on Saturday, the eve of New Year, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Thursday.
PAGASA Administrator Dr. Nathaniel Servando said most parts of the country will experience strong and cold wind from the northeast monsoon (hanging amihan), tail-end of a cold front, and wind convergence in the next five days.
“Luzon will be adversely affected by the surge of northeast monsoon and tail-end of cold front that will bring light rains onward until New Year’s Day, becoming frequent over the eastern section,” Servando said.
However, he pointed out that tropical cyclone development is unlikely during the weather outlook period.
He also said Eastern Visayas and Mindanao will have cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms becoming widespread rains over Eastern Mindanao due to wind convergence and southward migration of the tail-end of cold front.
Servando warned fishermen in coastal areas of Luzon and Eastern Visayas to refrain from venturing out into the sea due to big waves generated by strong northeasterly winds.
“Likewise, fisherfolk in the rest of the country should exercise extra-caution because of moderate to rough seas associated with moderate to strong winds,” he said.
