Typhoon Chedeng is coming to PH on Holy Week

PAGASA warns that a rainy Holy Week is expected in the country once Typhoon Maysak enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Wednesday. The typhoon will be locally named as Bagyong "CHEDENG". In its weather bulletin issued at 11 this Holy Monday, March 30, 2015, (and also as shown in the satellite image above), "MAYSAK" was estimated 2,240 km east of Mindanao (8.6˚N, 146.7˚E), with maximum sustained winds of 140 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 170 kph.

By Holy Wednesday, April 1, which is also April Fools' Day and definitely PAGASA is not gonna fool us as they expect the Typhoon Maysak to enter PAR on this day and will be named Chedeng. It's gonna be a rainy wet Holy Week, and the Bicol Region once again may be affected the most. Oh no, hope it's not gonna be rainy during our "Alay Lakad" from Naga City to Calabanga, Camarines Sur on Maundy Thursday, April 2.

Meanwhile, Pagasa said on Monday that the weak northeast monsoon is still affecting extreme northern Luzon. "Batanes will experience partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with isolated light rains. Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms," Pagasa said in its 5 a.m. forecast. Quitlong said that as soon as the northeast monsoon is terminated possibly within the week--the state weather bureau will announce the start of the dry season.
