PAGASA issued Special weather outlook for the Holy Week (March 25 - 31, 2013)



PAGASA on Monday issued a special weather outlook for Holy Week 2013 which covers Holy Monday to Easter Sunday (March 25 - 31, 2013). According to the weather bureau, the diffused tail-end of a cold front, a Low Pressure Area (LPA) and the easterlies are expected to be the dominant weather systems to affect the country during the Holy Week.

The diffused tail-end of a cold front will bring occasional light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms over Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon and Quezon province today until tomorrow morning.

Thereafter (March 26-27), generally good weather condition associated with warm and humid temperature is expected throughout the country aside from isolated thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.

On the afternoon of Maundy Thursday (March 28), a Low Pressure Area is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibilty (PAR) but will still have no direct effect on any part of the country.

So on Maundy Thursday up to Good Friday (March 28-29), the whole country will still experience generally good weather with isolated thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.

On Black Saturday (March 30), the expected approach of the LPA over Southeastern Mindanao in the morning and its eventual landfall in the evening will bring light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms over the whole of Mindanao becoming moderate to heavy rains over the regions of CARAGA and DAVAO. The LPA will then move towards Central Visayas crossing the area on Easter Sunday (March 31) and is expected to bring light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms over Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao becoming moderate to heavy rains over Western Visayas.

The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be generally slight to moderate except during thunderstorms throughout the outlook period with the exception of the Northern Seaboard of Northern Luzon which will have moderate to rough seas today and tomorrow (March 25-26).

The LPA, as of recent analysis with the aid of all available forecasting tools, has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone.Effective today, the code GREEN of the RWS is changed to ORANGE such that the warning levels are now YELLOW, ORANGE and RED. These colors are generally associated with awareness, preparedness and emergency respectively.

As per PAGASA, outlook will be updated as soon as significant changes in the weather occur.
