THE tail-end of a frontal system being fanned by a low pressure area (LPA) is bringing moderate to heavy and even intense rains over areas in Isabela, Cagayan and Aurora, the state-run weather agency said on Thursday.

In its 11 a.m. weather advisory, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the LPA was last seen at 190 kilometers south-southwest of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.

Saying it is less likely to develop into a tropical depression, Pagasa said it is the tail-end of a frontal system, which is the boundary between the easterlies and the northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan”, that is affecting the eastern sections of Northern and Central Luzon.

In the next 24 hours, Pagasa said that moderate to heavy rains with at times intense rains will be experienced over Isabela, the eastern portion of mainland Cagayan and the northern and central portions of Aurora.

As moderate to heavy rains will be experienced over the rest of Cagayan Valley and Aurora, the weather bureau said light to moderate with at times heavy rains will be experienced over Cordillera Administrative Region, Nueva Ecija, the northern portion of Quezon, including Polillo Islands and the southern portion of Palawan including Balabac Island.

Pagasa said the next weather advisory will be issued at 11 a.m. on Friday unless an intermediate advisory is released.
