Pagasa: Rain over extreme northern Luzon due to LPA trough off Japan
MANILA, Philippines — The trough of a low-pressure area (LPA) off Japan will bring rain over extreme northern Luzon, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Friday.
In a weather forecast, Pagasa weather specialist Benison Estareja explained that the trough refers to the LPA’s extension, which is seen to cause rainy conditions over extreme northern Luzon.
He also said that rains will continue over parts of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao due to the southwest monsoon, which is locally known as habagat.
And while Pagasa predicted that Metro Manila might experience clear skies on Friday, rain showers remain possible in the afternoon and evening through early Saturday morning.
The state weather bureau likewise observed a few cloud clusters east of northern Luzon and Mindanao and over the West Philippine Sea. But Estareja said that the cloud clusters now appear to have a low chance of developing into tropical cyclones.
