Pagasa: Tropical depression may enter PAR by Saturday
MANILA, Philippines – A new weather disturbance may enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) Saturday morning, the state weather bureau said Friday.
In its 4 a.m. live weather update, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that the low-pressure area 1,685 kilometers east of the Visayas has intensified into a tropical depression.
Pagasa weather specialist Ana Clauren said that the tropical depression is less likely to make landfall but is expected to affect Northern Luzon.
Meantime, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms on Friday.
Pagasa warned of possible flash floods and landslides in rain-hit areas. /gsg
