The broad and thick rain bands associated with the wind convergence along the northeasterly trade winds will bring moderate to heavy rains across Samar Provinces, Leyte Provinces, Surigao Provinces, Agusan Provinces, Northern part of Bukidnon, Misamis Oriental, Siquijor, Bohol, Cebu and Northern portions of Negros Oriental and Negros Occidental tonight through Friday evening (Jan 20). The rains will be more frequent along the coastal and mountain slope areas of these affected provinces. Hence, the RED and ORANGE Rain Alerts (Severe Weather Warnings) have been hoisted along these areas. Residents are advised to take precautionary measures against possible flash floods and landslides.
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.
