Tuesday, September 10, 2013
A low pressure area (LPA) was seen at 1,210 km East of Mindanao, said the state weather bureau in its 5:00 a.m. advisory Tuesday.
The LPA is currently embedded along the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) across Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
"Palawan, Visayas and Mindanao will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms," it said.
Meanwhile, the skies of Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
"Moderate to occasionally strong winds blowing from the east will prevail over extreme Northern Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to occasionally rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the southwest to southeast with slight to moderate seas," Pagasa also said. (SFP/Sunnex)
