PAGASA says another LPA expected to develop outside PAR within the week
(Eagle News) — Rains are expected in parts of Mindanao until the end of the week due to the trough of a low pressure area off Surigao del Sur.
A recent bulletin from the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said the LPA was spotted 790 km east of Hinatuan, and its trough will bring rains in the eastern portion of Caraga, Davao region, Soccsksargen, and parts of Bangsamoro starting today.
According to PAGASA weather specialist Benison Estareja, the LPA is apart from another one that is expected to develop outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility within the week.
He said that potential LPA, however, was less likely to develop into a storm.
Meanwhile, the PAGASA bulletin said Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains, this time due to the northeasterly wind flow affecting Luzon.
Visayas, on the other hand, will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.
According to the weather bureau, Luzon will have moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough coastal waters.
Visayas and Mindanao, on the other hand, will have light to moderate winds and slight to moderate coastal waters.
