/ 07:29 PM August 25, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — A low-pressure area (LPA) surrounded by thick clouds spotted east of the country is being monitored by state meteorologists as it may enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) within the next 48 hours.

Weather updates on Monday afternoon from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) showed that the LPA, currently located 1,160 kilometers east of Visayas, is accompanied by cloud bands that may cover parts of Visayas and Mindanao.

“May mga makakapal na kaulapan pong bumabalot dito sa nasabi nating low pressure area na posible pong maka-apekto dito sa may Bicol Region at sa may Eastern Visayas sa mga susunod na araw,” weather specialist Ana Clauren said.

(There are thick clouds surrounding this low-pressure area, which may affect weather systems over the Bicol Region and Eastern Visayas in the coming days.)

“Kaya patuloy po tayong magmonitor dito sa nasabi nating low-pressure area,” she added.

(That’s why we should continue monitoring this said low-pressure area.)

For Tuesday night and Wednesday, parts of Northern and Central Luzon will still experience rains brought by the southwest monsoon or habagat, which is still intensified by Typhoon Bavi (formerly Igme) even as it moves away from the PAR.

However, the remainder of the country would only be affected by slight and occasional rains, as satellite imagery shows thin clouds hovering over the rest of Luzon including Metro Manila, and the Visayas, and Mindanao.

Meanwhile, Wednesday’s temperatures in Metro Manila and Legazpi may peak to 33 degrees Celsius during the daytime, and hit around 26 to 32 degrees Celsius in Laoag and Puerto Princesa.

In the Visayas, Iloilo, Cebu, and Tacloban will feel temperatures of 26 to 33 degrees Celsius. As for Mindanao, the climate will be between 25 and 33 degrees Celsius in Davao, 25 to 32 degrees Celsius in Cagayan de Oro, and 23 to 34 degrees Celsius in Zamboanga.

A gale warning is still up over the waters of extreme northern Luzon due to Typhoon Bavi, which means small boats are not allowed to set sail in the area. Luzon’s eastern and western sea conditions will also remain moderate to rough while the rest of the country’s coastlines will see slight to moderate situations.
