Rain over parts of Mindanao likely due to trough of LPA
MANILA, Philippines — The trough of a low-pressure area (LPA) is anticipated to cause precipitation in some parts of Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Tuesday.
In its latest bulletin, Pagasa said the LPA was last spotted 1,015 km east-southeast of Davao City in Davao del Sur.
The state weather bureau also said it will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Caraga, Davao Region, Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon, and North Cotabato.
Pagasa likewise warned that flash floods or landslides may occur during moderate with at times heavy rain in these areas.
Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon or “amihan” that will affect extreme northern Luzon will bring partly overcast to overcast skies with isolated light rain over Batanes and the Babuyan Islands. But Pagasa said it sees no significant impact from this weather event.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country will likewise experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms, according to Pagasa, adding that flash floods or landslides may occur during severe thunderstorms.
The northern and eastern sections of the country, on the other hand, will experience moderate to strong winds in the northeast direction coupled with moderate to rough coastal waters.
The rest of the country, the weather agency said, will have light to moderate winds in the northeast direction and slight to moderate sea conditions.
Pagasa further said it recorded temperatures as low as 23.8°C at 5 a.m. and as high as 32.2°C at 1:50 p.m. at the Science Garden weather station in Diliman, Quezon City.
