MANILA, Philippines – While a low pressure area (LPA) has emerged east of extreme Northern Luzon, fair weather will still prevail across the archipelago due to the easterlies, said the state weather bureau.

An early morning forecast from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) showed that the LPA may either develop into a storm or be absorbed by the intensified typhoon being monitored outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR).

“Ang magiging scenario ng LPA ay una, may posibilidad na maging bagyo. Pangalawa, itong bagyo na nasa labas ng ating PAR ay maaaring higupin itong LPA,” Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio said.

(The LPA presents two possible scenarios. First, it may progress into a typhoon or second, it may be sucked into the typhoon outside the PAR.)

He noted, however, that fair weather with chances of rain from afternoon to evening is still expected throughout the country due to the easterlies.

“Ang nakakaapekto po sa ating bansa ay ang easterlies kaya sa araw na ito, inaasahan pa rin natin na maganda at maaliwalas na panahon sa Luzon,” Aurelio added.

(Today, the easterlies are affecting the country, so expect good and clear weather in Luzon.)

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies and isolated rains will similarly persist in the Visayas and Mindanao due to easterlies and localized thunderstorms, according to Pagasa.

Meanwhile, it listed the range of temperature in the following cities and areas on Tuesday:

  • Metro Manila — 24  to 32 degrees Celsius
