Palawan is expected to have a 30-40 percent chance of rain on Tuesday night until Wednesday morning this week due to the convergence point that could reach the province, the state weather bureau said.
Sonny Pajarilla, local chief of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), said this is because of the frontal system prevailing on the northern part of Luzon and the cold wind component coming from the Taiwan area or the south of Japan.
“Ngayon ang umiiral ay frontal system dito sa hilagang Luzon at medyo meron pa rin component ng malamig na hangin na nanggagaling dito sa may Taiwan area o dito sa south ng Japan na inaasahan na bababang bahagya at maaaring umabot ang convergence point nyan dito sa Palawan,” he said.
The chance of rainfall is possible both in the Calamian Group of Islands and in the main island of Palawan, Pajarilla said.
Fine weather will be observed starting today until tomorrow, although there will be an isolated cloudiness that can collide with the mountains resulting to secluded rain showers.
Pajarilla added the situation is caused by the prevailing easterlies in the large part of Mindanao, Visayas, and Palawan.
It will be mostly cloudy during the morning or Tuesday evening until Wednesday morning, he also said.
The sea current ranges from slight to moderate condition and sailors are allowed to venture out to the sea.
“Katamtaman lang din ang alon, medyo may mga bugso-bugsong hangin na nagdudulot ng katamtaman, medyo may pag-alon tayo pero wala tayong pagbabawal sa mga manlalayag,” he added.
