Wednesday was rainy because of two weather systems.

According to the forecast office, two weather systems will cause rain to fall in much of the nation on Wednesday.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) stated in its 5 a.m. report that rain will fall over the Batanes and Babuyan Islands due to the frontal system hitting extreme Northern Luzon.

Due to the southwesterly wind flow, there will also be sporadic rain showers and thunderstorms over the Zamboanga Peninsula, the Bangsamoro region, and Palawan.

PAGASA warned that in the event of moderate to sometimes heavy rains, landslides or flash floods may occur in specified locations.

Over Metro Manila and the rest of the country, isolated rain showers are predicted by the southwesterly wind flow and localized thunderstorms.

Extreme Northern Luzon will experience moderate winds and waves, while the rest of the nation will experience light to moderate winds and mild to moderate seas.

Super Typhoon Mawar is slowly making its way toward the northwest and is anticipated to land in the Philippine Area of Responsibility either Friday or Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds can reach 185 kph, and gusts can reach 230 kph.

Obet Badrina, a PAGASA weather expert, said the tropical cyclone has a slim probability of touching down. Still, it might strengthen the southwest monsoon, bringing rainfall, especially in the western parts of Luzon, the Visayas, and perhaps Mindanao.

On guard

Along with other relevant National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) member agencies, the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) continuously monitors weather disturbances.

OCD spokesperson Assistant Secretary Bernardo Rafaelito Alejandro IV provided an update on Wednesday. “Initially, we alerted LGUs (local government units) located in the eastern seaboard of the country as “Mawar” will be coming from the eastern side of the country. However, we are now alerting LGUs in the western seaboard as the tropical cyclone will intensify and pull southwest monsoon that will cause strong winds and rains.

He stated that the OCD will work with scientific organizations to undertake a pre-disaster risk assessment to establish the LGUs’ sensitivity to the tropical cyclone’s effects.

According to Alejandro, this will enable the LGUs to choose the warning level and accompanying response procedures they should use.

Responders and rescuers are on high alert, and aid supplies are being gathered and prepared.
