Potential cyclone enters Philippine territory

January 2, 2013MANILA, PhilippinesA potential cyclone entered the Philippine territory on Wednesday, bringing in rains in parts of the country, the weather bureau said. Arvin Bordon of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said the low pressure area was last seen 790 kilometers east of Mindanao as of 8 a.m. The LPA was embedded along the inter-tropical convergence zone (ITCZ) affecting Mindanao which will enhance the winds of the storm. In a special weather forecast, Pagasa said Davao and Compostela Valley will be cloudy with moderate rains Wednesday, and moderate to heavy rains Thursday. Northeast monsoon is affecting Northern Luzon. Cagayan Valley and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon will experience cloudy skies with light rains. Leyte provinces and Mindanao will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers or thunderstorms. Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy with brief rain showers or thunderstorms, Pagasa said. Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and Eastern Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast to north with slight to moderate seas. –Inquirer

    Storms in December (and possibly this January) never happened before in the Philippines, ever… Storms only formed from June-October during the rainy season. This is evidence of changing weather patterns.

    I wouldn’t make a sweeping “never” statement. Storms in the deep Pacific tropics can happen at almost any time of the year. However, the breakdown of morality evidenced by the passing of the RH bill and the sweeping away of long-held tradition may be causing a “reaction from nature” against man’s lack of gratitude toward his Creator. Continued events bear prayerful watching.
