Bad weather expected in northern Luzon and Bicol
A low pressure area (LPA) made its landfall at Maddela, Quirino, early Sunday morning but was not expected to develop into a typhoon, the state weather bureau said in its forecast.
Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) weather forecaster Gener Quitlong said in his 4 a.m. forecast that the LPA was not expected to develop into a typhoon throughout the day.
Due to the LPA, the Bicol Region and the provinces of Cagayan, Apayao, Ilocos Norte, Batanes and the Babuyan group of Islands will experience cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rain with thunderstorms due to the LPA, Pagasa said.
Pagasa said the LPA would also bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rain with thunderstorms throughout Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon.
The Visayas and Mindanao, meanwhile, will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies apart from isolated rain showers mostly in the afternoon or evening caused by localized thunderstorms. /cbb
