By LCP Secretariat
February 8, 2013 - Metro Manila

Philippine cities can now read their local daily weather forecast and monitor for any upcoming weather disturbance with more precision. Thanks to Weather -Philippines, 100 LCP member-cities have received their free automated weather stations (AWS). As of February 2013, 78 cities have already installed their AWS in their respective areas.

On February 08, 2013, Valenzuela City hosted the last leg of installation training for Luzon-based cities. Valenzuela City Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian also witnessed the signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between LCP and Weather Philippines. The MOU outlines a series of technical assistance to cities in improving their local weather forecasting. LCP Secretary-General and Alaminos City Mayor Hernani Braganza and Weather Philippines Foundation Representative Sabin Aboitiz signed the MOU.

In 2012, LCP has teamed up with Weather Philippines in distributing AWS to each LCP member-cities. A state-of-the art equipment, AWS provides real time weather forecasts including temperature, wind speed, wind direction, amount of rainfall and weather visibility.

Between August – October 2012, an estimated 300 local environment officers and/or disaster risk reduction officers had attended in a series of technology and installation training in Baguio, Pagadian, Davao, Calamba, Mandaue, and Iloilo cities.

LCP and Weather Philippines Foundation with Meteomedia are developing new line of sustained programs which will improve cities reduce disaster risks and cope up with the changing climate. The AWS is hoped to provide cities on-time local weather data and a tool into the formulation of community-based disaster risk management and local climate change action plans.
