Philippines Weather & Puerto Galera Weather
Philippine weather, for sailing, has two distinct seasons: Northeast monsoon "Amihan" winds, from November to April; and, Southwest monsoon "Habagat" winds, from May to October. Tropical storms and typhoons (hurricanes / cyclones) may affect Philippines weather at any time of year but most frequently from April through to November; typhoons almost never affect the sailing around Mindanao, because it is too far South, creating excellent cruising opportunities from Samal Island (in the Davao Gulf), around the East coast to Dapitan (Zamboanga Del Norte) and through the southern Visayan region (Bohol through Negros to southern Palawan).
Because the Philippines is so strategically located, between the West Pacific and the South China Sea, Puerto Galera weather forecasts, Philippine weather forecasts and typhoon warnings are available through a myriad of different weather forecast sources.
Puerto Galera weather forecasts and Philippines weather forecasts contain hourly, six hourly, daily and weekly weather forecasts & updates, including satellite imagery, barometric weather charts and weather webcams.
