LPA east of Davao unlikely to evolve into tropical cyclone – Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines —A low-pressure system east of Davao City in Mindanao is not expected to form into a tropical depression as all signs point to it dissipating before it reaches shore.
Weather information from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) on Wednesday afternoon indicated that the LPA was last plotted 495 kilometers east of Davao, lying along the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ).
These two weather systems are expected to bring cloudy skies and rains over Mindanao and parts of Visayas, especially its eastern portion.
Despite the appearance of an LPA, Pagasa assured that no other weather disturbances are being monitored as of now.
Due to the ITCZ and LPA, Visayas and Mindanao may have slightly colder weather on Thursday, as moderate to heavy rains may occur in the coming hours. Pagasa warned that flash floods and landslides are also possible, especially for those living near hazard areas.
Normally hot Zamboanga would have temperatures of 25 to 31 degrees Celsius, Cagayan de Oro with 24 to 32 degrees, Davao with 25 to 32 degrees, Cebu with 27 to 32 degrees, and Iloilo with 26 to 33 degrees.
Over to the north in Luzon, humid weather would continue due to the easterlies, but isolated rain showers are also possible. Temperatures over Tuguegarao would hover around 26 to 38 degrees Celsius, Metro Manila with 26 to 35 degrees, Laoag with 26 to 34 degrees, Tagaytay with 22 to 32 degrees, Legazpi with 26 to 33 degrees, and Puerto Princesa with 25 to 31 degrees.
No gale warning has been raised, but the whole eastern seaboard would have a moderate condition. The rest of the country would have slight to moderate seas.
