/ 06:56 PM January 16, 2018

The low pressure area off Surigao del Sur has dissipated, the state weather bureau said Tuesday.

Sheilla Reyes, weather specialist of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, said that a new LPA was spotted 2,320 kilometers east of Mindanao.


The weather disturbance is not likely to intensify into a tropical cyclone but the trough of the LPA will bring cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms over Caraga, Visayas, provinces of Masbate, Romblon, Mindoro, Palawan, and the rest of Mindanao.

The tail-end of a cold front will continue to bring cloudy skies with scattered rains of Calabarzon, Marinduque, and the rest of Bicol.

The northeast monsoon will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains over Metro Manila and Central Luzon.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains are expected over the rest of Luzon, Pagasa said. /je
