LPA not seen to intensify as tropical cyclone, but to cross Visayas, Palawan — Pagasa

/ 06:29 PM October 22, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — The low-pressure area (LPA) east of the country is not expected to intensify into a tropical cyclone, but the state weather bureau said that it would cause rains as it crosses over Visayas and Palawan.

Weather updates on Friday afternoon from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) showed that the LPA is currently 415 kilometers east of Borongan City, Eastern Samar.

The LPA lies along the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), which would also bring rain showers over the weekend in the northern and central parts of Mindanao. Pagasa said that it may cross the Visayas region in the next three days.

Parts of Luzon including Metro Manila may experience isolated rain showers, while Cagayan Valley and the northern tip of the country may also see rains due to the northeasterly surface wind flow.

For Saturday, most areas in Luzon would have warm and humid weather but the ITCZ will bring rains over Southern Luzon. Daytime temperatures would be lower down south, as Metro Manila and Puerto Princesa would have something around 25 to 32 degrees Celsius, Legazpi with 26 to 32 degrees, compared to Tuguegarao’s 23 to 33 degrees and Laoag’s 24 to 33 degrees.

In Visayas and Mindanao where the ITCZ would be felt the most, temperatures would also be lower like in the case of Tacloban with 25 to 29 degrees Celsius, Cebu with 26 to 31 degrees, Iloilo with 25 to 32 degrees, Zamboanga with 24 to 31 degrees, Cagayan de Oro with 24 to 30 degrees, and Davao City with 26 to 34 degrees.

Rains in Baguio are expected to continue until Sunday, while it may stretch until Monday in Metro Manila and Legazpi due to their proximity to the ITCZ. Pagasa’s three-day forecast sees improving weather in the above-named areas by Tuesday, while in Cebu, weather would be better starting Monday.

Meanwhile, a gale warning remains raised over the entire seaboard of Ilocos Norte and Bataan, along with the northern waters of Cagayan including Babuyan Islands.

The whole eastern seaboard would have a moderate condition, while the rest of the country’s remaining waters would have a slight to moderate condition.
