MANILA, Philippines – Parts of the country will experience monsoon rains and scattered rain showers, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Friday (August 2).
PAGASA said this is due to a low pressure area (LPA) in the eastern side of the Philippines and the southwest monsoon (habagat) prevailing over the western section of Luzon. The southwest monsoon is being enhanced by a storm in the southern part of China.
In a daily weather advisory posted on its website, the state weather bureau said that monsoon rains will be experienced in Pangasinan, Zambales and Bataan.
Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Cordillera Administrative Region and the rest of Ilocos Region and Central Luzon will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to southwest monsoon.
Bicol Region, Visayas, Caraga and Northern Mindanao will also experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers due to the trough of LPA.
PAGASA said in its weather advisory issued at 11 a.m. that it is closely monitoring if the LPA will develop into a tropical depression, which will be named “Hanna,” within 48 hours.
The state weather bureau advised local authorities to take precautionary measures as flashfloods and landslides are possible.
Some local government units have suspended classes in their respective areas due to heavy rains.
MANILA, Philippines — A low pressure area (LPA) located South of Zamboanga City, Zamboanga del Sur is less likely to develop into a tropical depression, according to PAGASA.
In its latest advisory, the state weather bureau said the effects of the tail-end of frontal system (shear line) will be affecting the Visayas region, Caraga, Northern Mindanao, Zamboanga Peninsula, Bangsamoro, Sorsogon, and Masbate.
Residents in the said areas will experience cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms that may trigger flash floods due to moderate to heavy rains.
Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon is currently prevailing in most parts of Luzon including Cagayan Valley, Apayao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Ifugao, Aurora, Quezon, and rest of Bicol Region.
Cloudy skies with light rains will prevail in these areas.
Similar weather system prevails in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon which may bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains throughout the day.
Meanwhile, the Davao Region and SOCCSKSARGEN will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers due to the effects of localized thunderstorms.
Residents are advised to brace for potential flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.
MANILA, Philippines — Two low pressure areas (LPA) are expected to bring rains and potential floods over several areas in the country, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
As of 4:00 AM Monday (December 28), the first LPA was located 90 km East of Baler, Aurora while the other LPA was estimated based on all available data at 235 km Northwest of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.
Likewise, the tail – end of a frontal system is now affecting extreme Northern Luzon.
The combined effects of the LPA and the frontal system will bring cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Cagayan Valley and Aurora provinces.
Meanwhile, the trough of LPA is expected to bring scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over the areas of Quezon and the rest of Northern Luzon.
Over Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, Central Visayas, Caraga and Davao Region, the easterlies will bring cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers due to localized thunderstorms.
