ONSET OF RAINY SEASON

14 June 2019

Quezon City, 14 June 2019

The occurrence of scattered to at times widespread rainfall associated with the Southwest Monsoon during the past few days as observed by most PAGASA stations in the western section of the country confirms the onset of the rainy season over the areas under the Type I climate. These rains will continue to affect the country, especially over the western sections of Luzon and Visayas. However, breaks in rainfall events (also known as monsoon break) that can last for several days or weeks may still occur.

Rainfall conditions for July are expected to be generally near to above normal over most parts of Luzon and the Visayas, while generally below normal in most areas of Mindanao and Southern Visayas.

Meanwhile, weak El Niño condition persisted in the tropical Pacific since the last quarter of 2018 and may likely to continue during the June-July-August 2019 season.

PAGASA will continue to closely monitor the situation and updates/advisories shall be issued as appropriate. The public and all concerned agencies are advised to take precautionary measures against the impacts of the rainy season.

For more information, you may contact PAGASA at telephone numbers 927-1335 or 434-0955.
