LPA near Surigao City to bring rains to Visayas, Mindanao


The low pressure area (LPA) spotted east of Surigao City will continue to bring rains over parts of Visayas and Mindanao.

PAGASA said that as of 4 a.m. Saturday, the LPA was spotted some 100km east of Surigao

while the tail-end of a cold front is affecting Northern Luzon.

The LPA will bring moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms over Palawan, Visayas and the regions of Zamboanga Peninsula, Bicol, Northern Mindanao and CARAGA which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

Metro Manila, the rest of Mimaropa and of Mindanao, Calabarzon and the province of Aurora will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms while the rest of Luzon will be cloudy with light rains.

The LPA has a slim chance of intensifying into a cyclone and it is expected to dissipate within the next 24 hours. But if it does intensify into a tropical depression, it will be named “Alamid.”

One more cyclone to affect the country before the month ends and at least two to three more storms before the end of the year.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast with slight to moderate seas.
