LPA continues to bring rain to Eastern Visayas, Mindanao — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — Parts of Visayas and the whole Mindanao would still experience rains brought by the low-pressure area (LPA) south of the country, state meteorologists said on Tuesday afternoon.
The LPA was last seen 210 kilometers southeast of General Santos City, or at the border of the Philippine area of responsibility, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) in its weather report.
It is expected to rise and fall in the coming hours before dissipating within the next two days. Due to this movement, Eastern Visayas and portions of Central Visayas may be affected by the rain showers, which may persist until Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.
Pagasa warned of the possibility of heavy rains, advising residents, especially those living near low-lying areas and mountain ranges, to watch their surroundings.
But for the rest of the country, warm and humid weather would continue due to the easterlies or the warm winds from the Pacific Ocean. The hot weather would continue on Wednesday, with Metro Manila expecting temperatures of 24 to 33 degrees Celsius, 24 to 34 degrees in Tuguegarao, 24 to 32 degrees in Laoag, 26 to 32 degrees in Legazpi, and 25 to 33 degrees in Puerto Princesa.
Even areas with usually cold conditions would be warm: Baguio would have something between 16 and 25 degrees Celsius and Tagaytay, between 21 and 31 degrees.
Mindanao’s weather conditions would be colder compared to the Visayas, still due to the LPA: Davao may register temperatures of 25 to 31 degrees Celsius, Zamboanga and Cagayan de Oro with 24 to 31 degrees, compared to Tacloban and Cebu’s 25 to 32 degrees and Iloilo’s 26 to 32 degrees.
No gale warning has been raised for the country’s waters, although conditions may vary south of Mindanao, as the LPA may cause thunderstorm activity.
