Pagasa monitors 2 low pressure areas
The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) is tracking two low pressure areas (LPA) that would bring rains and could intensify into a tropical cyclone to mostly affect parts of the Luzon region.
In its Wednesday weather bulletin, Pagasa said that an LPA located 350 kilometers east of Casiguran in Aurora will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains over Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley Region, and CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon).
The rest of the country would have partly cloudy to cloudy skies apart from isolated rain showers mostly in the afternoon or evening, the weather bureau added.
Meanwhile, weather forecaster Chriz Perez said the other LPA located east of Luzon outside the Philippine area of responsibility has a bigger chance of intensifying into a tropical cyclone.
Pagasa noted that coastal waters over Northern and Central Luzon will be moderate to rough, while coastal water over Southern Luzon and Eastern Visayas will be moderate to occasionally rough. /kga
