MANILA, Philippines — The rainy season associated with the southwest monsoon is likely to start between the last week of May and mid-June, the state weather bureau said yesterday.?

Ezra Bulquerin, weather forecaster at the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), told Teleradyo there are two criteria in officially declaring the start of the rainy season – the recording of 25 millimeters or more of rainfall for three consecutive days in at least seven out of its 14 stations and the prevalence of the southwest monsoon.

The declaration of the rainy season applies to areas under Type 1 Climate with distinct dry and wet seasons.

These include Bataan, Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Mindoro, Palawan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Zambales and Metro Manila.

Meanwhile, Bulquerin said no weather disturbance is expected to affect the country in the next three to five days.

He said the country will continue to experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers due to the easterlies or warm air from the Pacific and thunderstorms.

As with so many things in the national news, this is very focused on Luzon. It's been pouring heavily here in northeast Mindanao every single day since October. May is normally our driest month but it's sure been wet this year. The only ones happy about this are our Muscovy ducks.

Yews. They say it's a La Nina year. The rainy season marches south as a demarcation front slowly make it's way towards us. Currently over VietNam

Here on Cebu, we only have two seasons ... wet and wetter. It can (and does) rain any time of the year.
