Pagasa: Expect fair and humid weather in Luzon, parts of Visayas in next 3 days

/ 07:23 AM July 19, 2023

MANILA, Philippines — The state weather bureau on Wednesday said most parts of the country may enjoy fair but humid weather conditions over the next three days despite the presence of a potential tropical cyclone off Mindanao.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) weather specialist Obet Badrina said residents of Luzon, including Metro Manila, and most of Visayas may experience partly cloudy skies on Wednesday.


“Sa Luzon at malaking bahagi ng Visayas ay halos walang masyadong kaulapan, ibig sabihin ngayong araw ay medyo mainit ang panahon na mararanasan sa Luzon at Visayas, pero asahan pa rin natin ang posibilidad ng thunderstorm,” said Badrina in a public weather forecast.


(In Luzon and in most parts of Visayas, there are almost no clouds, which means that today,  the weather will be quite warm in Luzon and the Visayas, but we should still expect the possibility of a thunderstorm.)

According to Badrina, this weather condition may prevail until the weekend. He then added that the low pressure area (LPA) off Mindanao, which may develop into a cyclone today or tomorrow will not immediately affect any portion of the archipelago.

“Maging bagyo man ito, wala pa rin itong direktang epekto sa anumang bahagi ng bansa,” said Badrina, adding that this potential cyclone may directly bring rain and affect the country early next week or on Sunday, July 23.

(Even if it becomes a tropical cyclone, it will still have no direct impact on any part of the country.)

Badrina also clarified that while the LPA is not yet directly affecting the country, its trough may still cause cloudy skies and chances of rain in parts of Visayas and Mindanao on Wednesday.

Among these areas are Eastern Visayas, Caraga, Bohol, Camiguin, Misamis Oriental, Davao de Oro, and Davao Oriental.

The LPA was last seen 710 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur. Once it develops into a tropical cyclone, it will be given the local name “Egay” — the country’s fifth cyclone in 2023.
