Monsoon, LPA to bring rains to parts of PH – PAGASA

Robie de Guzman   •   August 2, 2019   •   1101

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.

Typhoon Ambo adds 3 meters to Angat Dam’s reserve

Marje Pelayo   •   May 17, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – The water level in Angat Dam has improved in the aftermath of Typhoon Ambo in Luzon.

According to the latest reading by the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the weather system has added 3.09 meters of water to Angat Dam’s reserve from 187.53 meters on May 15 to 190.62 meters on 6:00 am, Sunday (May 17).

Angat’s water level is now 10 meters over its normal operating level of 180 meters.

Last week, the National Water Resources Board (NWRB) has increased domestic allocation to Metro Manila from Angat Dam to 48 cubic meters per second from 46 cubic meters per second to maintain enough supply on the duration of the government-imposed community quarantine in view of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) crisis. –MNP (with reports from Rey Pelayo)
