MANILA, Philippines — State meteorologists said Thursday that no low-pressure area (LPA) is being monitored or is likely to form in the next few days around the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR), but rain may continue in many parts of the country due to the easterlies and northeast monsoon.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the northeast monsoon, locally known as amihan, will dampen Apayao, Batanes, and Cagayan, including the Babuyan Islands, on Thursday.


The northeast monsoon was also forecast to bring overcast skies with isolated light rain in the Ilocos Region, the rest of the Cordillera Administrative Region, and the rest of Cagayan Valley.


Pagasa weather specialist Patrick Del Mundo said the easterlies will prevail in Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

“Asahan na magiging madalas pa rin ang mga pag-ulan sa may bahagi ng Quezon, Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, Caraga, at sa may Davao Region,” he said in an early morning public weather report.

(Expect rains to continue to be frequent in parts of Quezon, Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, Caraga, and Davao Region.)

Del Mundo advised residents in the affected areas to exercise caution due to the possibility of flooding and landslides due to easterlies.

“We continue to advise our fellow countrymen there to be cautious of the threat of flooding and landslides, especially during heavy rainfall brought about by the easterlies,” the weather specialist said in Filipino.

Despite no LPAs being detected within and outside PAR, the weather specialist said they spotted cloud clusters off Mindanao and eastern Luzon.


“It is expected to bring rain today in the areas of Quezon and the Bicol Region,” del Mundo said, referring to cloud clusters seen off eastern Luzon.

He also said that cloud clusters off Mindanao will likely dissolve by Thursday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Pagasa’s advisory indicated that a gale warning remains in effect over the seaboards of Batanes, Babuyan Islands, and Ilocos Norte due to the effects of the northeast monsoon.
