MANILA Light and loose clothing must be the order of the day on Wednesday, as the Philippine, Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) expects a ridge of a high-pressure area (HPA) to bring warm weather in the country, particularly in northern Luzon.
In its 4-p.m. weather bulletin on Tuesday, PAGASA said the HPA, which brings nice and warm weather, will affect north Luzon.
The easterlies, which are warm winds blowing from the Pacific, would continue to prevail over the country, it added.
In the agency's weather forecast, PAGASA weather specialist Ezra Bulquerin said Luzon would have a nice weather with partly cloudy to cloudy skies and sudden isolated light to moderate rains with at times heavy rains brought by local thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.
Visayas and Mindanao, on the other hand, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers in the afternoon and evening caused by local thunderstorms.
Bulquerin noted the country would generally have nice weather with partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers from Wednesday until Friday.
The seaboards of northern Luzon are also forecast to have slight to moderate coastal waters, pushed by light to moderate winds. The remaining seaboards of the country, meanwhile, will have slight to moderate coastal waters caused by light to moderate winds.
Until Saturday, PAGASA forecasts the country to have a temperature range of 16C to 38C.
PAGASA also recorded a minimum temperature of 26C and maximum temperature of 34.2C at the PAGASA Weather Station in Quezon City on Tuesday. (PNA)
