MANILA, Philippines—Amid summer’s sweltering heat, one low pressure area (LPA) has managed to creep inside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR).

Last spotted at 910 kilometers east of Guiuan, Eastern Samar, the LPA entered the PAR at 10 am Monday morning.


According to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), the LPA would usher in cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms over eastern Visayas especially on the Samar provinces.

Seaboards of the Visayas islands would be moderate to rough.


Pagasa said that the new LPA has minimal chances of intensifying into a storm as it is still too far in the ocean.
