MANILA, Philippines — The trough of a low pressure area (LPA) within the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) will trigger rain showers in the Visayas and parts of Mindanao on Sunday, while fairer weather is expected in Luzon, said the state weather bureau.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) weather specialist Benison Estareja said that the LPA was last spotted 1,315 kilometers east of Central Luzon, and is expected to move westward towards Luzon.

“Ang trough ng nasabing LPA ang siyang nagpapaulan sa malaking bahagi ng bansa (the trough of the said LPA is what will bring rain over a large part of the country,” he said.


Rain is expected in the Visayas, as well as parts of Mindanao, specifically, Zamboanga Peninsula, Caraga region, Northern Mindanao, Davao del Sur and Basilan.


The rest of Midnanao, on the other hand, will have fairer weather with hot and humid conditions.

Fair weather with possible isolated rain showers is forecast in Luzon, with cloudy skies expected in Palawan, as well most of the eastern portions of Luzon, specifically Cagayan Valley, Aurora, Quezon and Camarines Norte.

Luzon rain alert

“Magpapaulan ito as early as tomorrow sa malaking bahagi ng northern part and even parts of Central Luzon, at hindi rin natin inaalis na maging isang bagyo ito bago tumama sa kalupaan,” he added.

(It will rain as early as tomorrow in the northern part and even parts of Central Luzon, and we are also not ruling out that it will become a storm before hitting the country’s landmass.)

Another LPA 

Estareja also said that another LPA is currently being monitored by Pagasa outside PAR, located 2,165 kilometers east of Visayas.

This weather disturbance may then enter PAR by Thursday or Friday.
