LPA seen near Aurora, to bring rains in part of LuzonBy Frances Mangosing
MANILA, Philippines – The low pressure area being monitored by the weather bureau was spotted near Aurora Friday morning and will bring rains in parts of Luzon.
The LPA was last observed 270 kilometers east of Casiguran in Aurora embedded along the monsoon trough affecting Luzon, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.
“Cagayan Valley will experience cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms which may trigger flashfloods and landslides,” Pagasa said.
Should it intensify into a tropical cyclone, it will be locally named “Odette.”
Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms, while Visayas and Mindanao will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
Light to moderate winds blowing from the west to southwest will prevail over Palawan, Visayas and Mindanao and coming from the northeast to northwest over the rest of Luzon, Pagasa said.
The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate, it added.
