Pagasa website needs redesign

Above are screenshots of two government weather websites. The left one is our own Pagasa website http://www.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/. The right is Australia's Bureau of Meteorology http://www.bom.gov.au/.

The Pagasa website is cluttered and crammed -- no visible handles to find information. The climate information is written in technical language, unfriendly to the average reader, whom Pagasa should probably target in the first place.

To view Pagasa weather reports, you have to download details on PDF. Go ahead try a PDF report, like this one: http://www.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/wb/fcst/bulletin.pdf

If you're too lazy to download, I enclosed a screenshot for you. Here's the weather Pagasa report in all its ALL CAPs glory, good luck reading it:

Pagasa, please improve your website design.
