MANILA, Philippines — The low pressure area (LPA) off Zamboanga del Sur will bring scattered rain showers to Palawan and parts of Mindanao, particularly the Zamboanga Peninsula, Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi on Monday, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

The LPA, embedded in the intertropical convergence zone, was spotted at 20 kilometers northeast of Zamboanga City, Zamboanga del Sur at 3 a.m.


“Itong low pressure area ay mababa pa rin ang tsansa na maging bagyo, at dahil dito sa araw na ito, may mga ulan tayong mararanasan sa bahagi ng Mindanao at sa Palawan,” Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio said.


(This low pressure area still has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone. Rain will affect parts of Mindanao and Palawan today.)

Meanwhile, the rest of the country, including Metro Manila, will have fair weather due to the easterlies with possible isolated rain showers.

“Sa nalalabing bahagi ng Luzon ay maganda at maaliwalas na panahon sa araw na ito maliban sa mga localized thunderstorm na kung saan magbibigay ito ng mga biglaang buhos ng ulan,” Aurelio said.

(The rest of Luzon will have fair weather, except for sudden rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.)

“Sa nalalabing bahagi ng Mindanao, kasama na rin ang buong Visayas, fair weather po tayo maliban sa mga isolated na pag-ulan dulot ng thunderstorm,” he further noted.

(For the rest of Mindanao and the entire Visayas, fair weather is also expected, except for isolated rain showers.)
