DAGUPAN CITY – Despite heavy rains being experienced in the province almost every afternoon, the rainy season is not yet officially here.
Greg De Vera, bureau chief of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration in Pangasinan, said the declaration of the onset of the rainy season is based on a criteria that at least five of the seven field stations of PAGASA all over the country would register at least 25 mm amount of rainfall for five days.
“As of today, rainy season is not yet official but it will soon be declared as most of the signs are now being experienced,” De Vera said during the KBP forum held at the Philippine Information Agency last week.
He said the rainy season will most likely be declared in early June and will continue until July and August.
Weather today remains in neutral condition with no threat of El Nino nor La Nina, he added.
The rains with thunder and lightning that beset the province, he said, is due to the southwest monsoon.
He advised the public to be wary of thunder and lightning and take precautions like unplugging electronic devices, staying away from open fields and watery areas.
Houses made of light materials and those that need repair must also be fixed as early as today to avoid problems when heavy rains come.
De Vera said PAGASA targets zero casualty in the rainy months thus reminding the public to be cautious all the time. (PIA-Pangasinan)
