Ten-Day Regional Agri-Weather Information

DEKAD NO. 18 June 21-30, 2017

PHILIPPINE AGRI-WEATHER FORECAST
The weather systems that will affect the whole country are ridge of high pressure area (HPA), intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), southwest monsoon and low pressure area (LPA) with chances of becoming tropical cyclone.

During the early days of the forecast period, the whole country will have good weather with possible occurrences of isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms. Afterwards, Eastern Visayas, Northern Mindanao, CARAGA, Davao and SOCCSKSARGEN will have cloudiness with rainshowers and thunderstorms. During the latter days of the dekad, the possible occurrence of LPA will convey cloudiness over Luzon with rainshowers or thunderstorms while the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with rainshowers or thunderstorms.

During the early days of the dekad, light to moderate winds from southwest to south will blow over Palawan while the rest of the country will have light to moderate winds from southeast to south. Afterwards, Visayas and Mindanao will have light to moderate winds from southeast to south. The rest of the country will have southwesterly windflow. During the latter days, winds coming from east to southeast will prevail over Luzon while the rest of the country will have winds from southeast to south.

The coastal waters throughout the whole country will be slight to moderate. However, during the latter days of the forecast period, the seaboards of Luzon is expected to be moderate to rough while the rest of the country will have slight to moderate seas.

  The eastern and central equatorial Pacific is in neutral condition.

FARM ADVISORIES

In order to attain potential rice production, farmers are reminded to choose the right variety for their field, it should be adapted to local conditions, high yielding and of desired maturity, resistant to major pests and soil problems, of good eating quality, should be of high quality seeds preferably certified seeds and raise the seeds into healthy and vigorous seedlings.

It is recommended to choose seedbed site that is near a water source, disease-free, and far from streetlights. Apply or incorporate organic matter into the soil to make it light and porous and facilitate seedling pulling.

Automatic Weather Station (AWS)

               
 IMG 1435    IMG 1551

These automated stations have built in weather instruments with electronic sensors for measuring surface level air temperature pressure, solar radiation, rainfall, wind velocity and other weather parameters. The stations have integrated data banks for storage of recorder data for later retrieval. (please click here for location)

Automatic Rain Gauges


GEDC0282      GEDC0264
Automatic Rain Gauges is intended catch rainfall through a tipping bucket mechanism which gauge and registered water content and automatically sends the data to PAGASA’s database via wireless network. (please click for location)

 

 Automatic Aviation Weather Observation System (AWOS)

The AWOS helps pilots and aviation personnel make critical decisions by providing continuous, real time information and reports on airport weather conditions.

     

Radio Detection and Ranging (RADAR)

  IMG 01171     IMG 01421

A weather surveillance radar (WSR) is useful in locating precipitation and estimate its intensity and in determining the center of tropical cyclones. In addition to this capability, state- of- the-art Doppler radars are capable of estimating radial velocity which can be used to determine the wind strength of tropical cyclones as well as to analyse its structure.

Upper air observations 

  upper-air1      upper-air31  

Upper air observations are essential inputs in numerical weather prediction models since they provide a vertical profile of the atmosphere. Direct in-site measurements of air temperature, humidity and pressure with height are measured with balloon-borne instrument platform with radio transmitting capabilities called radiosonde, typically to altitudes of approximately 30 km. These data are crucial in the forecast for severe weather and for aviation route forecasts. The upper-air measurements are transmitted to a ground receiving station.
