Cloudy weather experienced this Friday morning will not last until the end of the day, according to the forecast of the state weather agency.
Sonny Pajarilla, local chief of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) in Palawan, said the cloudiness experience will only occur for a short period and will not last during the whole day.
Pajarilla said there is a low chance of having rain showers today.
“Ngayon lang din itong pangungulap, may periodic times lang ‘yan, hindi ito magiging maghapon. Dahil moving (cloudiness), mayroon mga times na sisikat ang araw, magiging manipis ‘yong ulap, may panahon din na medyo makapal pero yong chances ng pag-ulan medyo mababa,” Pajarilla said Friday.
The cloudiness is due to overlaying clouds where there is a low and middle cloud in the second layer, he added.
The isolated rain showers can only be expected in elevated areas yet PAGASA said these have no significant volume.
The weather bureau expects warmer temperature as the prevailing wind is coming from the Pacific Ocean and the cloudiness observed at dawn.
Unlike recent chilly morning temperatures, Pajarilla said it will not be experienced today because the outgoing long wave radiation was trapped due to the maximum insulation yesterday.
It was absorbed by the land the time it was intended to be released that is why humid temperature was experienced early morning, he also said.
“Bukas inaasahan natin ang paghina ng ating umiihip na hangin kaya dahil magiging mahina ang convergence dito sa north easterly winds at easterlies ay halos mawawala kaya inaasahan natin uli ang dominant na pagiging mainit at partly cloudy lamang,” he saidn
Pajarilla said rainfall will less likely be experienced, the wind will weaken during weekends, and continuous cold mornings can still be experienced.
“Medyo bugso-bugso lang itong paglakas, kagabi then mahina na rin ngayon. I-expect natin na ngayong hapon ay malakas-lakas uli ito pero bukas ng umaga ay mas mahinang hanging Amihan ang ating inaasahan,” he said.
