MANILA, Philippines — The low pressure area (LPA) in the vicinity of Negros Oriental may leave the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) by Thursday or Friday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said on Wednesday.

“Nananatili pa rin na mababa ang tsansang maging bagyo itong LPA at inaasahan na ito ay kikilos pakanluran. After sa Western Visayas, dadaan ang LPA sa Sulu Sea at tatawid sa Palawan, at inaasahan na lalabas ng PAR ang LPA pagdating ng Thursday or Friday,” he said in a weather forecast.

(This LPA still has a low chance of becoming a storm. It is expected to move westward. After traversing Western Visayas, the LPA may move towards the Sulu Sea and cross Palawan. It is expected to leave PAR on Thursday or Friday.)
