Friday, September 7, 2012
MANILA -- A low pressure area (LPA) spotted off Eastern Visayas will bring rains in some parts of the country.
the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said as of 2 a.m. Friday, the LPA was seen at 920 km East of Visayas (11.0°N, 135.0°E),.
However, the LPA has a small chance of developing into a tropical cyclone.
If the weather disturbance becomes a tropical cyclone, it will be named “Karen," the 11th cyclone to enter the country this year.
The LPA will affect Eastern Visayas and Mindanao, wherein they will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms.
The rest of the Luzon including Metro Manila will have fair weather but will experience partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.
Pagasa said that light to moderate winds blowing from the Northeast to East will prevail over Northern Luzon and coming from the Northeast to Northwest over the rest of the country.
Pagasa said the coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate. (Sunnex)
