Disclaimer: Internet is one of the main modes by which PAGASA disseminates the Philippine Standard Time (PST). Obviously, there may be discrepancies with the PST displayed (above) as compared to the PAGASA's clock. The major causes of the discrepancy are internet transmission delay and the computer workload of the computer you are using. If you need a more precise clock synchronization, we would suggest that you call (+632) 9291237.
