The cloudiness associated with a strong Surface Trough will bring moderate to heavy rains across Northern Samar, Northern sections of Samar and Eastern Samar, Masbate including Ticao and Burias Islands, Sorsogon, Albay, and Catanduanes today through Sunday afternoon (Mar 12). The rains will be more frequent along the coastal and mountain slope areas of these affected provinces. Hence, the ORANGE and RED Rain Alerts (Severe Weather Warnings) have been hoisted along these areas. Residents are advised to take precautionary measures against possible flash floods and landslides.
Meanwhile, the rain alerts previously hoisted across parts of Palawan, Visayas and Mindanao are now lifted.
WeatherPhilippines has upgraded its features with a current warning menu. Within this menu there are wind and rain warnings. These warnings will give you color coded alerts depending on its severity. This will show you an overview of the entire Philippine map and quickly determine weather warning alerts. This feature is currently available and ready for use. Below is the Weather Severity Matrix.
