LPA brings rains, thunderstorms in Bicol region, Mimaropa, Visayas
MANILA, Philippines — Several areas in the country including Bicol region, Mimaropa, and the rest of Visayas are expected to experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday due to low pressure area (LPA), the state weather service reported.
The LPA was detected 20 kilometer east northeast of Catarman, Northern Samar as of 3:00 am, according to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
“Bagama’t maliit ang tiyansa nitong maging bagyo at possible itong matunaw within 12-24 hours or less, ay patuloy tayong magmo-monitor sapagkat posibleng maapektuhan nito ang ilang bahagi ng ating bansa,” senior weather specialist Chris Perez said.
(Although there is a small possibility of it becoming a typhoon and may disintegrate within 12-24 hour or less, we are still monitoring it because it could affect some parts of the country.)
“Magiging maulap, may kalat-kalat na pagkidlat o pagkulog sa may bandang Mimaropa at Bicol Region,” Perez added. “Sa natitirang bahagi ng Luzon kabilang ang Metro Manila, bahagyang maulap hanggang sa maulap, pero may tiyansa din ng pag-ulan.”
(The weather in Mimaropa and Bicol region will be cloudy with scattered rains and thunderstorms. For the rest of Luzon including Metro Manila, the weather will be cloudy to partly cloudy although with chances or rains.)
“Magiging maulap, kalat-kalat na pagkidlat at pagkulog at may mga pulo-pulong pagkidlat o pagkulog sa Visayas ngayong araw samantalang sa Mindanao, ay patuloy ang mainit at maalinsangan panahon,” he explained.
(The weather in Visayas will be cloudy with isolated thunderstorms while in Mindanao, the hot and humid weather will still prevail.)
Meanwhile, there are no gale warnings raised in any of the country’s waters with all parts of the country having slight to moderate sea condition.
