Light-heavy rain in Visayas, Palawan on March 13
MANILA, Philippines – The tail-end of a cold front is expected to bring rain to parts of the country on Tuesday, March 13.
A cold front forms when an advancing cold air mass displaces warmer air in its path, causing the displaced warm air to rise, which then leads to the formation of clouds and precipitation. (READ: FAST FACTS: Tropical cyclones, rainfall advisories)
