Onset of the Rainy Season

The prevailing synoptic conditions over the country are now characterized by southwesterly windflow, high humidity, and occurrence of daily rainshowers and thunderstorms. This development signifies the onset of the rainy season over the western section of the country.

During the next two (2) months (July-August), near (81-120%) to above normal (>120%) rainfall conditions are expected in most parts of the country. However, monsoon breaks are likely, which may last for several days.

Meanwhile, the unusual warming of sea surface temperature (SST) over the tropical Pacific indicates the development of El NiƱo within the next three (3) months (June-July-August). Starting September, rainfall patterns in some parts of the country will be affected.

PAGASA will continue to monitor the tropical Pacific and updates will be issued as appropriate. Concerned agencies are advised to take precautionary measures. For more information, please contact Weather Division (927-1541 / 927-1335) and Climatology and Agromet Division (434-0955 / 435-1675)..
