Expect sunny weather from Maundy Thursday to Good Friday, but Black Saturday and Easter may be somewhat wet, especially in the southern parts, due to an approaching low pressure area (LPA), the state weather bureau said.

In a special weather outlook for the Lenten break, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) predicted good weather, with warm and humid temperature on Thursday and Friday.

But an LPA spotted east of the Philippines will approach southeastern Mindanao in the morning of Black Saturday and is expected to make landfall in the evening, bringing light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms over the entire Mindanao, Pagasa said.


The rains will be moderate to heavy in the Caraga and Davao regions, it added.

“The LPA will then move toward Central Visayas crossing the area on Easter Sunday (March 31) and is expected to bring light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms over Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and moderate to heavy rains over Western Visayas,” Pagasa said.
