MANILA, Philippines – State weather bureau PAGASA is monitoring a Low Pressure Area (LPA) in the eastern part of Mindanao.
Based on PAGASA’s 4:00 AM update Monday (January 13), the LPA was spotted at 735 km East Southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.
Meanwhile, parts of Northern Luzon are currently experiencing the effects of the tail end of a cold front which brings cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms in areas in Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region,and Aurora.
Possible flash floods or landslides due to scattered light to moderate to at times heavy rains
Also, cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms will prevail over Caraga and Eastern Visayas as a result of the impact of the trough of the LPA.
This condition may cause possible flash floods or landslides due to scattered light to moderate to at times heavy rains.
Meanwhile, volcanic activity is currently affecting the provinces of Batangas, Cavite, and Laguna.
Hence, cloudy skies with isolated rains and thunderstorms may possibly reduced visibility and cause mudflow during ash fall and light to moderate rains.
Residents in the affected areas are advised to take extra caution and heed warnings from authorities.
In Ilocos Region, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains caused by the northeast monsoon will prevail.
This may cause intermittent strong winds especially in coastal and mountainous areas.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will also experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.
Residents are urged to monitor for possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms especially in areas susceptible to these hazards.
Thus, monsoon rains will specifically affect Metro Manila and areas of Central Luzon, CALABARZON, and MIMAROPA due to the LPA and the southwest monsoon.
Meanwhile, cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms will be experienced in Western Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, SOCCSKSARGEN, Davao Region and the rest of Luzon due to similar causes.
The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms due to the effects of the southwest monsoon.
Meanwhile, the Southwest Monsoon is affecting Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
Sea travel especially among those using small seacrafts may be risky thus the agency advised owners of small sea vessels to take precaution against potentially rough seas in thunderstorms when venturing out over the seaboards of Luzon and Western Visayas.
The public is advised to continue monitoring updates through its website and take appropriate measures as weather conditions may cause serious flood and landslides.
MANILA, Philippines – Tropical Depression (TD) Carina is forecast to weaken into a low-pressure area (LPA) on Tuesday (July 14) afternoon or Wednesday morning (July 15).
According to the latest update from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the weather system is seen to move towards the north direction while heading towards the Bashi Channel and the southern portion of Taiwan.
As of 11:00AM on Tuesday, TD Carina was located at 155km west of Basco, Batanes.
It is moving toward the northwest direction at 25 km/h packed with maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h and gustiness of 55 km/h.
PAGASA said tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 (TWCS) remains over Batanes which means isolated light to moderate rains with at times heavy rain showers will prevail today until tomorrow as well as in nearby areas, the Babuyan Islands and Ilocos Norte.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country, meanwhile, will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers today and tomorrow due to localized thunderstorms.
MANILA, Philippines — At 2:00 am on Monday (July 13), the low pressure area (LPA) spotted east of Cagayan province has developed into tropical depression Carina, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
As of 4:00 AM today, the weather system was located at 315 km East of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan packed with maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h and gustiness of up to 55 km/h. It is moving westward at 20 km/h.
Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) #1 is raised over the areas of Batanes, Babuyan Group of Islands, and Northern Cagayan specifically Sta. Ana, Gonzaga, Sta. Teresita, Bugey, Eastern Lal-O and Baggao.)
This means moderate to heavy rains will prevail over Babuyan Islands and the eastern section of mainland Cagayan and Isabela.
Meanwhile, light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, the rest of Cagayan Valley, Aurora, and the northern portion of Quezon including Polillo Islands.
Moderate to rough seas will be experienced over the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon in the next 24 hours thus small seacrafts are advised not to venture out to sea.
The center of TD Carina is forecast to pass close to the northeastern portion of Cagayan and the Babuyan Islands between tonight and Tuesday morning.
A landfall scenario over these areas remains likely, according to PAGASA.
Metro Manila, Western Visayas, and the rest of Luzon, meanwhile, will experience cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms due to the effects of TD Carina.
Mindanao and the rest of Visayas will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers mostly in the afternoon or evening due to localized thunderstorms.
