Pagasa: LPA east of PH vanishes, another west of Zambales leaves PAR
MANILA, Philippines — The low pressure area (LPA) in the eastern portion of the country has “completely dissolved” while the other one located west of Iba, Zambales has left the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR).
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) reported this Sunday, noting that the LPA outside PAR has a low chance of becoming a storm as its effects on the country have already weakened.
“Kahapon ng alas-dyes ng gabi ay tuluyan na nalusaw itong LPA na ating minomonitor sa silangan ng ating bansa. Samantala ito namang pangalawang LPA na ating binabantayan ay nakalabas na rin ng ating PAR kaninang alas-dos ng madaling araw,” said weather specialist Daniel James Villamil.
(Yesterday at ten o’clock in the evening, this LPA that we are monitoring in the east of our country was completely dissolved. Meanwhile, this second LPA that we are monitoring already left our PAR at two o’clock this morning.)
Pagasa likewise reported that the southwest monsoon, locally known as habagat, will still prevail over southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
It further noted that the trough or extension of LPA will also affect Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, and Visayas.
Hence, the state weather service said cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms may be expected in these areas while partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms may be experienced in Mindanao due to the southwest monsoon and localized thunderstorms.
Flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms in low-lying areas are possible, it warned.
As for the country’s seaboards, Pagasa did not raised any gale warning on Sunday.
