Pagasa says skies will be cloudy, rain likely on Tuesday
MANILA, Philippines — Overcast skies with rain, thunder, and lightning will prevail throughout the country on Tuesday, said the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
According to Pagasa weather specialist Grace Castañeda, the shear line or tail-end of a frontal system will cause such cloudy conditions in Batanes and Cagayan. She also said that the same situation will occur in Northern Luzon but it will be due to the northeast monsoon or amihan.
“Para naman po sa Metro Manila maging sa nalalabing bahagi ng bansa, inaasahan po natin na magiging bahagyang maulap ang kalangitan pati may mga tiyansa po ng pulo-pulong pagulan, pagkulog, at pagkidlat,” said Castañeda.
(As for Metro Manila and the rest of the country, we expect the sky to be slightly cloudy as there will be chances of rain, thunder, and lightning.)
The same weather conditions will also prevail in the Visayas and Mindanao regions, the state weather service said.
On the other hand, Pagasa said the low-pressure area (LPA) it is monitoring outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) was at 1,745 kilometers east of Visayas as of 3 p.m. Monday.
Castañeda said the LPA will be named “Odette” onced it escalates into a tropical depression and enters PAR.
Meanwhile, Pagasa said temperature ranges in key cities/areas on Tuesday will be the following:
- Metro Manila: 24 to 31 degrees Celsius
- Baguio City: 15 to 24 degrees Celsius
- Laoag City: 24 to 32 degrees Celsius
- Tuguegarao: 23 to 30 degrees Celsius
