New LPA may enter PAR next week — Pagasa
A low-pressure area (LPA) spotted east of the country may enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) next week, possibly on Tuesday (Oct. 2), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said on Friday.
In its 5 a.m advisory, the state weather bureau said the weather system was last located around 2,915 kilometers (km) east of Mindanao.
“Ang nasabing LPA, possible po itong maging isang ganap na bagyo at possible pong pumasok ito sa PAR sa Martes,” weather specialist Meno Mendoza said.
Meanwhile, Typhoon “Paeng” (international name: Trami) continues to slowly move northwest away from the PAR with maximum sustained winds of 160 km per hour (kph) and gusts up to 195 kph.
“Paeng” was last spotted at 695 km east-northeast of Basco, Batanes, and is expected to leave PAR on Saturday, Pagasa reported.
Pagasa said Metro Manila and the rest of the country is expected to have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers caused by localized thunderstorms. /muf
