Checking the weather at the PAGASA Baler Radar Station


Baler Radar Station is located at  Sitio Diguisit, Brgy. Zabali, baler, Aurora with an elevation of 178.2m  above sea level.  It was just up a hill and from the base  it would take more or less 10 minutes to get there.

On our way up:

Hindi kinaya ng tricycle :(
Lakad lakad din.
Isipin mo na lang exercise din yan.
Little did we know that its was steep with only a single road that can only fit one vehicle at a time we even encountered a truck going down the hill on our way up.

At the top of the hill:

View of Pacific Ocean

Dicasalarin Bay
The Doppler Radar.


I was about to go when the person in charge for that day asked me if I like to look around inside the office. Thank so much sir for allowing me to explore the place and teaching me how to read some meteorological data. (nakalimutan ko yung pangalan nung personnel kung alam nyo po pakisabi sakin para mailagay ko thanks!).

Additional Information:

*PAGASA installed its first Doppler weather radar station in Baler, Aurora and another in Baguio.

* Doppler radars are now used for weather warnings (such as rainfall) through Project NOAH since June 2012.

Thanks for viewing!


  1. I like the view from the top! and cool pina tour ka sa inside the office

    1. oo nga maganda dun sa taas nung building at mabait yung nagbantay nung pumunta ako

  2. Wow, nice naman at talagang pinapasok ka pa ng personnel inside their office. Yang mga ganyang events ang tinatawag kong happy acidents sa biyahe ;-) I've had many of those, mga unexpected moments at kindness ng strangers as you travel at super nakakatuwa, di ba?

    By the way, hope you will also find your itchyfeet exploring my province Northern Samar. Invite kitang bumisita sa Biri rock formations. If you have time, paki-click na lang ang Biri category sa sidebar ng blog ko hehe. Sorry sa shameless plugging ng Biri rock formation but this is one of the ways I can help promote tourism in my province at sana'y makatulong sa kabuhayan ng mga tao doon. Salamat!

    1. Hi thanks for dropping by and thank you again for the invite, isang beses pa lang ako nakakarating sa Northern Samar mga 8 years old lang ata ako nun. heheh, Anyway taga-samar din yung father side ko kung tama yung pagkakaalala ko San isidro ata yun. :)
