Expect cold, dry air as Amihan season begins – Pagasa



MANILA, Philippines — Bring out those sweaters as cold and dry air will prevail in the coming days and months with the onset of the northeast monsoon or Amihan, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Friday.

The weather bureau officially announced the start of Amihan season on Thursday, October 24, and with this, Pagasa explained, northeast wind flow is expected to become dominant over most parts of the Philippines.

“Surges of cold temperatures may also be expected in the coming days to months,” Pagasa Administrator Vicente Malano said.

According to Malano, the beginning of Amihan season is marked by the strong to gale force northeasterly winds which prevail over the seaboards of Northern Luzon due to strengthening of the high-pressure system over Siberia, Inquirer.net reports.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and
    was wondering what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

PAGASA: Kammuri intensifies into severe tropical storm as it nears PAR



MANILA – Weather disturbance Kammuri intensified into a severe tropical storm as it moved towards the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Wednesday, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

In its 5 p.m. bulletin, PAGASA said the weather system was spotted 1,645 kilometers east of Visayas while packing maximum sustained winds of 90 kilometers per hour near the center and 115 kph gusts.

It is expected to enter PAR by Sunday, Dec. 1. Once Kammuri enters the area, it will be named Tisoy. The storm may affect central and southern Luzon with moderate to heavy rain showers with strong winds, PAGASA said.

It may also affect Northern Luzon, although it is not expected to make landfall, the weather bureau said.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon (amihan) is still bothering Northern Luzon, especially Cagayan Valley and Cordillera, with cloudy skies and scattered light to moderate rain showers.

The rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, will experience cloudy skies with light rains over the day. (Via ABS-CBN News)

DFA tells Pinoys in Japan: Steer clear of typhoon Hagibis



MANILA — The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Friday urged Filipinos in Japan to “be careful” of typhoon Hagibis and avoid travelling to areas that may be lashed with its heavy rains and strong winds.

Japan is home to some 290,000 Filipinos. Areas from the west to the northeast of the country would experience “brutal winds and violent seas,” warned Japan’s Meteorological Agency (JMA).

“The [Philippine] Embassy has asked Filipinos in Japan to be careful as heavy rains, strong winds, high waves, and storm surges are likely to occur, and to avoid travelling to potentially affected areas until the typhoon has dissipated,” the DFA said in a statement.

Overnight, Hagibis was downgraded slightly from its “super typhoon” status, but was still forecast to be packing maximum gusts of 216 kilometers per hour when it makes landfall late Saturday.

The storm has already forced the cancellation of 2 Rugby World Cup matches, disrupted the Suzuka Grand Prix and grounded flights. Train operations in Tokyo may also be suspended, said the DFA.

The public should monitor updates from public transportation firms and the Japanese government, while Filipinos in need of help can contact the Embassy hotlines +81 80 4928 7979 and +81 80 7000 7979, added the agency.

The massive storm is expected to dump up to half a meter (nearly 20 inches) of rain on the Tokyo area in the 24 hours to midday on Sunday, with up to 80 centimeters forecast for the central Tokai area.

Japanese officials said they were on alert, with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ordering officials to “take every possible measure to ensure people’s safety,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters.

Japan is hit by around 20 typhoons a year, though the capital is not usually badly affected.

Hagibis is bearing down on the region just weeks after another powerful storm, Typhoon Faxai, hit the area with similar strength, killing 2 and causing major damage in Chiba, east of the capital.

More than 36,000 homes were damaged or destroyed in Chiba, and the local government has urged those in damaged buildings to take shelter elsewhere during the storm.

Local officials equipped with satellite phones will be dispatched across the region to ensure communities can seek help during and after the storm. | ABS CBN News
