AS Tropical Depression “Nando” exits the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), a new low pressure area (LPA) was spotted in the eastern section of Mindanao, the state-run Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said on Sunday.
The LPA’s trough is forecast to bring cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Surigao del Sur, Compostela Valley, Davao Oriental, Davao del Sur, and Davao Occidental.
Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will experience partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies apart from isolated rainshowers mostly in the afternoon or evening due to localized thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, Nando which brought heavy rains over Zambales and Bataan over the weekend, was last located 625 kilometers (km) west of Sinait, Ilocos Sur with maximum winds of up to 45 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of 60 kph.
It is forecast to move west-northwest at 24 kph and will have no effect in any area of the country, Pagasa said. GLEE JALEA
