Pagasa: Hotter parts of Luzon likely due to HPA’s ridge

/ 07:45 AM April 16, 2024

MANILA, Philippines — The ridge of a high-pressure area (HPA) is seen to bring warmer weather to parts of North and Central Luzon’s eastern portion on Tuesday, the state weather bureau said.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), HPA diminishes the possibility of rainfall as it causes higher maximum temperatures.


“Kaya asahan po natin dahil posibleng medyo magiging mababa po ‘yung tsansa na may kaulapan mabubuo lalong-lalo na sa silangang bahagi ng Northern at Central Luzon, magiging mainit po ang panahon at matataas po na maximum temperatures ang mararanasan ngayong araw,” Pagasa weather specialist Rhea Torres said.


(So, let’s expect that since the chance that clouds will form in the eastern part of Northern and Central Luzon is low, the weather will be warm, and maximum temperatures will be high today.)

Pagasa, on the other hand, said the trough of a low-pressure area (LPA) outside the Philippine area of responsibility may bring rain to some areas in Mindanao.

The LPA, however, is not expected to develop into a tropical cyclone, the weather agency added.

As for the rest of the country, Pagasa said Tuesday’s weather would be generally fair, albeit hot and humid, despite chances of isolated rain showers.
