LPA, northeast monsoon, shear line to cause rain over PH
MANILA, Philippines — The low pressure area (LPA), shear line, and the northeast monsoon, locally known as amihan, will trigger rain over the country on Monday.
According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), the LPA was last spotted at 195 kilometers north of Legazpi City in Albay.
The LPA has a potential to become a tropical cyclone.
“Itong low pressure area na ito at itong shear line, ito ang magdadala ng mga ulan dito sa may silangang bahagi ng Luzon,” Pagasa weather specialist Veronica Torres said in a public weather forecast.
(This low pressure area and shear line will continue to bring rain showers here in the eastern section of Luzon.)
“Samantalang itong northeast monsoon naman, patuloy ang pag-apekto niya dito sa may Luzon area,” she added.
(Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon continues to affect the Luzon area.)
The LPA and shear line will bring overcast skies with scattered rain showers over Bicol Region, Mainland Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, Quezon, and Northern Samar.
The LPA, along with localized thunderstorms, will also cause partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Mimaropa (Mindoro, MArinduque, Romblon, Palawan), the rest of Visayas, and Mindanao.
The rest of Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Ilocos Norte, meanwhile, will have cloudy skies with rains due to the amihan.
The rest of Luzon, including, Metro Manila will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains also because of the amihan.
Further, the following areas are under a gale warning:
- Cagayan including Babuyan Islands
- Quezon including Polillo Island
- Camarines Norte
- eastern coast of Camarines Sur
- eastern coasts of Albay and Sorsogon
- Ilocos Norte
