Parts of PH will experience rain again due to LPA, southwest monsoon – Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — Rain may be anticipated in various parts of the country in the next 24 hours due to two weather systems, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Wednesday.
In its 24-hour bulletin, Pagasa said a low-pressure area (LPA) was located 250 kilometers east of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan at 3 p.m., August 17, while the southwest monsoon, or locally “habagat,” will continue to affect the western sections of Northern and Central Luzon.
The state weather service said the LPA and southwest monsoon would bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over the Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Bicol Region, Quezon, Aurora, Zambales, and Bataan.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
Pagasa warned flash floods or landslides might occur due to moderate to, at times, heavy rains or severe thunderstorms.
Light to moderate wind speeds from southwest to the south is also expected to prevail over Luzon and Visayas, coupled with slight to moderate coastal waters.
Mindanao will likewise have light to moderate winds from south to southwest, with slight to moderate sea conditions.
Pagasa further said it recorded a minimum temperature of 25.4°C around 5 a.m. and a maximum temperature of 31.5°C around 1 p.m. at its Science Garden weather station in Diliman, Quezon City, on Wednesday.
The sun was forecast to set at 6:18 p.m. on Wednesday and rise at 5:43 a.m. on Thursday, August 18.
