Expect fair weather Sunday in Luzon, including Metro Manila.
Luzon, including the capital, will experience partly cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms, said weather observer Ben Oris of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration.
“We will have fair weather in Luzon,” he said.
Some parts of the Visayas will be partly cloudy with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms, while the rest will be mostly cloudy with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms. Mindanao will be partly cloudy to at times cloudy, with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms.
A shallow low pressure area spotted 180 kilometers east of Mindanao dissipated Saturday noon. Another LPA was spotted east of Bicol, but it was still outside the Philippine area of responsibility, forecasters said.
As of 2 p.m. on Saturday, the LPA based on satellite and surface data was estimated at 1,150 km east of southern Luzon.
Moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest to south will prevail over northern and Central Luzon and coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the southwest to west with slight to moderate seas.
An average of 20 cyclones crosses the archipelago every year. So far, three cyclones have swirled into the country this year. The last tropical storm, “Carina,” entered the northwestern section Wednesday night but only briefly. It induced monsoon rains over the western section of northern Luzon.
