MANILA, Philippines — A new low-pressure area (LPA) was spotted near Palawan on Thursday morning while the other LPA in Central Luzon has dissipated, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).


Pagasa, in its 4 a.m. weather update, reported that the new LPA was last located 210 kilometers south southwest of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.

 “Kaninang alas dos ng umaga ay may namataan tayo na panibagong LPA sa karagatan malapit sa Palawan province. Itong LPA ay nakapaloob sa ITCZ na nakakaapekto rin ngayon sa Mindanao at maging sa Palawan province,” Pagasa weather specialist Loriedin Dela Cruz said. 


 (A new LPA was spotted at 2 a.m. over the waters of Palawan. This LPA is embedded in the ITCZ that also affects the weather in Mindanao and Palawan.)

 “‘Yung LPA na nasa silangang bahagi ng Central Luzon ay nalusaw na po ngayon o nagdissipate na (The LPA in the eastern portion of Central Luzon has already dissipated),” she added.

 On Wednesday, Pagasa also said that the LPA earlier spotted off Romblon province has likewise dissipated. 

PH weather forecast

Meanwhile, Pagasa said Metro Manila, Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, Central Luzon, Quezon, and Rizal will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the tail-end of a frontal system. 

 The LPA near Palawan and the ITCZ will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms to the rest of Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon), Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan), Western Visayas, Central Visayas, and Mindanao.

 The rest of the country, on the other hand, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms, according to Pagasa.
