Any ideas when the nasty weather system will pass?

16 posts in this topic

For the last 24 hours or so, we've been experiencing very strong winds and rain showers. It doesn't seem to be letting up. The PAGASA website is not clear about the system.

 

Any weather aficionados know about the weather in the PAR at present? Particularly Eastern visayas.

 

I wanted to make travel plans using ferries, but can't get a good read on the weather and signals.

Jawny, you will have some pretty good winds for the next few days at least. I'm in Cebu City and we've been beautiful for several days now with no major rain in sight. However, you will have to contend with the waves. I'd take a big slow boat. Fast craft will be very bumpy.

Looking at the forecast models there is really no day this week that there is not at least a chance for rain. Thursday is looking like it will be the best day coming up this week. Maybe no rain at all and calm winds. After that, there will be another low pressure system that will bring wind and heavier rain back over the eastern visayas and eventually rain over all of the visayas by the weekend. That of course is subject to change, but that is how it looks right now.

Eastern visayas.

 

"5-Day Tropical Discussion:

A near-equatorial trough remains horizontal, centered near 7°N latitude.  The disturbance centered roughly near 145-150°E continues to be the subject of interest.  Although it is yet to be classified as an invest, this disturbance continues to maintain model trend consistency, showing mild development over the course of the next 5 days.  It is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility by Thursday, spreading showers across the western Carolines and Palau in the near-term.  Currently, the probability for tropical cyclone development with this disturbance remains low.  If any development occurs, it will be limited; i.e. a minor tropical depression.  That noted, regardless of the cyclone status, heavy rainfall will be the main threat of this system.

Current forecast paints the threat of heavy rain across Caraga and the Eastern Visayas region this weekend.  News reports from the Caraga Region is indicate over 22-thousand residents are still in evacuation shelters after previous flooding events from earlier in the month.  If the current forecast verifies, it may intensify a delicate situation.  We'll continue to monitor the situation as the disturbance evolves."

Well, this is the second wind storm in less than two weeks. We've had rain from before Christmas, but the wind came as a surprise both times. For the past 24 hours, we've had some pretty extreme gusts. Right now we are in a generator for our evening activities. The brown out lasted all day, then when they did get the power back on, it was only around 100 volts. I managed to burn up a UPS before I realized the problem.

 

I guess that 100 volts was too much, so it came on, went off an hour later. Sorry to whine.

 

I'm downloading the windytv app now.

 

Thanks.

Same here; we had consistent 25-30 knot winds from 3 am until mid-afternoon today with some gusts much stronger.

 

No brownout (fingers crossed) but did lose one lakatan banana tree.

      Don't know how long this has been an issue, but over the last few months Netflix and Amazon movies have been buffering, lately it has become annoying so I started looking into it.   I am in the US by the way, but think this could be an international problem. I am with Comcast Infinity and should have 20mb service with a Motorola SB6121 modem 6 to 7 years old.   This is not a rented modem from Xfinity, I own it. I have avg of 3.2 download and around 1 upload.   I contacted tech support and they were pretty good on the phone, but emphasized that this is not their modem so speeds are not guaranteed. After 20 minutes of on the phone resetting things, removing router from system they declared my modem is the problem and they want to send me one of theirs. At $10 month rental. I don't trust them but cannot seem to find a way to tell if it is the modem and cannot seem to find a way to test it.   Any thoughts on this or websites would be appreciated.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace
