Weather

The location of the Philippines is such that there are 2 annual monsoon seasons. In other words, we get a lot of storms. If you live in, or are travelling to, the Philippines, it is good to know what to expect.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is the official governmental agency in charge of keeping track of the weather. Click here for the PAGASA Weather Branch Homepage. Below you will find their most recent satellite image:

The Weather Channel has a nice interactive page, with a scalable map and most recent satellite images slide show. Click here to view their page on Weather.com.

Another good source of weather information is the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) Naval Oceanogpraphy Portal. Their site can give you a good idea of what is headed our way, as well as updates on current storms. Here is a link to their most recent satellite image for the Western/South Pacific Ocean.
