Light-heavy rain in Caraga, Davao on May 28
MANILA, Philippines – The tail-end of a cold front is expected to bring rain to parts of Mindanao on Monday, May 28.
In a bulletin issued 4 pm on Sunday, May 27, state weather bureau PAGASA warned Caraga and Davao to brace for light to heavy rain. Residents of these regions should watch out for possible flash floods and landslides.
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)
