LPA off Davao City dissipates; no tropical cyclone expected until weekend — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — The low-pressure area off Davao City disappeared Thursday, expecting no tropical cyclones to enter or form within the Philippine Area of Responsibility until the weekend, the state weather bureau said.
The said LPA dissipated at 2 p.m., according to Raymond Ordinario, weather specialist of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
Ordinario added that no tropical cyclones are expected to form within the country’s area of responsibility for the next three days.
Despite the dissipation of the LPA, several areas in the country are still expected to have overcast skies with rains due to northeast monsoon or amihan and shear line.
Shear line, or the weather system forming when cold and warm winds converge, will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms to Caraga region, Northern Mindanao, Eastern Visayas, Central Visayas, Albay, Sorsogon, and Catanduanes.
Cloudy skies with rains are expected in Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, the rest of Bicol Region, Aurora, Quezon, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, and Romblon due to amihan, or the weather system caused by cold winds blowing from Siberia.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country are set to have fair weather, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains and isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, Pagasa raised a gale warning due to amihan.
