• LPA to bring rains over Eastern Visayas, Mindanao


    A low-pressure area (LPA), which is now inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), will bring rains in some parts of Visayas and Mindanao, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

    Pagasa weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio on Tuesday said the LPA has a slim chance of intensifying into a tropical cyclone and is expected to dissipate after hitting landmass.

    He added that the agency will continue to monitor the LPA and once it intensifies into a tropical depression, it will be named “Seniang”, the 19th tropical cyclone to affect the country this year.

    Aurelio said the presence of the LPA would bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers over parts of Eastern Visayas and Caraga.

    Meanwhile, he said the tail-end of a cold front and Northeast monsoon continue to affect Central and Northern Luzon.

    The cold northeast monsoon is expected to bring cloudy skies with passing light rains in Northern Luzon.

    With the effect of the Northeast Monsoon, Pagasa said strong to gale-force winds would cause rough to very rough sea conditions over the seaboards of Northern Luzon.

    “Fishing boats and other small sea crafts are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves,” it warned.

    Aurelio also said the tail-end of a cold front will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains over Central Luzon.

    The rest of the country, including Metro Manila, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with possible isolated rains due to localized thunderstorms.
