Bad or Wrong Weather Forecast of PAGASA - True or Not?

During the typhoon Juaning, some immediately judged the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) for bad or wrong weather forecast. Some said that no heavy rains or strong winds at their areas but PAGASA still gave signal warnings.

On July 25, 2011, during the second SONA of President Noynoy Aquino, he specially mentioned the services being offered by PAGASA. Quoted from the english version of his speech, he said:

"I likewise thank my Cabinet, who have sacrificed their personal comfort to fulfill the national agenda. I give special mention to PAGASA, who now truly delivers reliable advice and warnings during times of calamity."

Meanwhile, PAGASA said they are doing their best to disseminate timely weather information.

"Dahil sa aming mga available information, hindi nagkulang ang PAGASA, on-time at iyon ay naidisseminate namin sa kinauukulan"
