Brace for rains in parts of PH due to LPA, amihan
MANILA, Philippines — The low-pressure area (LPA) and northeast monsoon, locally known as “amihan,” will trigger rains over parts of the country, the state weather bureau said late Tuesday afternoon.
In its 4 p.m. weather bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said overcast skies and scattered rain showers brought about by the LPA, which was last spotted 660 kilometers east of Davao City, will persist in Caraga and Eastern Visayas.
Rain will likewise be experienced in the Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Ilocos Region due to the northeast monsoon affecting Luzon and Visayas.
It is also expected to bring rains over the rest of Luzon and Visayas, including Metro Manila, according to Pagasa.
The state weather service further noted that moderate to strong winds moving northeast are seen to prevail over Luzon and Visayas.
It added that coastal water conditions in the area would be moderate to rough.
In Mindanao, on the other hand, slight to moderate coastal water conditions and light to moderate wind speed–moving northeast to the north–are expected.
