A STATIONARY FRONT (FRONTAL BOUNDARY) is bringing some cloud cover and periods of light to at times moderate rain showers or thunderstorm across the BATANES & BABUYAN ISLAND GROUP.
Meanwhile, a newly formed TROPICAL DISTURBANCE (LPA) 90W was seen near 1,640 km. E of Tandag City, Surigao Del Sur – just SSE of Yap State. The system is currently at MEDIUM (35-65% Chance) of becoming a significant Tropical Cyclone within the next 24 hours.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will have clear to partly cloudy skies, with isolated rain showers or possible thunderstorms developing in places.
Important note: In the infrared (IR) satellite image shown above: BLUE areas indicate Clear Skies with a Few Clouds; GREEN = Partly to Mostly Cloudy Skies; YELLOW = Mostly Cloudy to Hazy Skies with Possible Slight-to-Moderate Rainfall; and RED = Thunderstorms with Moderate to Heavy to sometimes Extreme Rainfall.
