MANILA, Philippines — A newly formed low-pressure area (LPA) will bring cloud bands that would affect several areas in Luzon, including Metro Manila starting Tuesday night, state meteorologists said.

Weather updates from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) on Tuesday afternoon showed thick clouds converging on the eastern part of the country, where the LPA is located.

Pagasa said that the LPA was last spotted 130 kilometers east northeast of Borongan, Eastern Samar.  The weather bureau does not expect it to intensify into a tropical depression; rather, it may dissipate in the next 24 hours.

“Ngayong gabi ay asahan dahil sa epekto nitong low pressure area, ‘yong buong Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol Region, ‘yong buong Visayas, Zamboanga peninsula, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, Zambales at Bataan, asahan na po ‘yong kalat-kalat na pag-ulan at ‘yong mga pagkidlat at pagkulog,” weather specialist Joey Figuracion said.

The LPA’s effects are still expected to be felt on Wednesday, especially over Bicol Region and Mimaropa.  On the other hand, the rest of Luzon would have a fair weather, although short isolated rains may still occur.

Due to the LPA, temperatures over Legazpi and Tagaytay would be slightly lower at 25 to 31 degrees Celsius and 22 to 30 degrees respectively, while Metro Manila would have something between 26 to 32 degrees, Laoag and Puerto Princesa with 25 to 32 degrees, and Tuguegarao with 25 to 36 degrees.

Rain showers would also prevail over the Visayas, leading to temperatures of 25 to 30 degrees Celsius in Tacloban, 26 to 30 degrees in Cebu, 27 to 32 degrees in Iloilo.  But in Mindanao, weather would be generally better as Cagayan de Oro’s temperatures may play around 24 to 32 degrees, Zamboanga with 24 to 33 degrees, and Davao with 25 to 32 degrees.

No gale warning has been raised despite the LPA’s presence, as sea conditions would range from slight to moderate only.
