MANILA, Philippines – Typhoon Julian is gaining strength as it moves northward over the Philippine sea, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

At 10:00 PM Monday, the eye of Typhoon Julian was located at 715 km East of Basco, Batanes.

It is moving northward at 20 km/h with a maximum sustained winds of 150 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 185 km/h,

It will remain far from the landmass and is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) tonight (August 31) or Tuesday (September 1).

Typhoon Julian is seen to intensify further within the next 24 to 48 hours and may reach peak intensity within the day or on Tuesday.

PAGASA has not raised any tropical cyclone wind signal anywhere in the country as it is unlikely throughout the forecast period. 

However, the southwest monsoon and the outer rainbands of ‘Julian’ will bring light to moderate, with at times, heavy rains over the following areas:

  • Ilocos Region
  • Cordillera Administrative Region
  • Batanes
  • Babuyan Islands
  • Cagayan
  • Isabela
  • Aurora
  • Zambales
  • Bataan
  • Cavite
  • Batangas
  • Occidental Mindoro
  • Northern Palawan including Calamian Islands

Likewise, the combined effects of the tropical cyclone and the Southwest monsoon will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon.

Meanwhile, areas in the Visayas and Mindanao will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to the impact of the monsoon rains and localized thunderstorms.

MANILA, Philippines –  Cloudy skies with rainshowers due to a low pressure area (LPA) and the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) are expected to prevail over several parts of Luzon and Visayas, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Thursday.

In its daily weather forecast, PAGASA said scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms may be experienced over Isabela, Aurora, Quezon Province including Polillo Island, Bicol Region, Northern Samar, MIMAROPA and Western Visayas.

The agency warned residents against possible flashfloods and landslides during severe thunderstorms.

At 3 p.m., PAGASA spotted the LPA 440 kilometers east northeast of Casiguran, Aurora.

Meanwhile, localized thunderstorms may bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.

Flashfloods and landslides are also possible, the weather agency added.

Longer nights, shorter days ahead as autumnal equinox occurs

Expect longer nights and shorter days after the occurrence of autumnal equinox last Tuesday night (September 22), according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

An equinox in Latin, means ‘equal night’. PAGASA explained that it is when day and night are of approximately equal duration all over the planet. After the autumnal equinox, the country will experience longer nights and shorter days due to the Sun traversing its shortest path of the year at the time of the winter solstice.

“Philippine nights will be longer as the sun moves below the celestial equator towards the southern hemisphere,” PAGASA said.

PAGASA also clarified that the equinox will not affect the change of temperature in the country. AAC
