Thursday, January 16, 2014
MANILA (Updated)-- The low pressure area (LPA) was seen at 310 kilometers (km) east of Guiuan, Eastern Samar, the state weather bureau said in its 11 a.m. advisory on Thursday.
"This weather system will bring cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms over Caraga region which may trigger flashfloods and landslides while light to moderate rain and thunderstorms over Bicol region, Visayas and northern Mindanao," The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
It said, "Residents are advised to take all the necessary precautionary measures."
Pagasa also said, "Strong to gale force northeasterly surface wind flow associated with the surge of the northeast monsoon is expected to affect the seaboards of Luzon, Visayas and Caraga region. Hence, small seacraft and fishing vessels are advised not to venture out into the sea due to big waves generated by this weather system."
The Northeast Monsoon still hovers over Luzon.
Cagayan Valley and the province of Aurora will most likely have cloudy skies with light rain.
"Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated light rain," said Pagasa.
It added, "The rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms." (SFP/Sunnex)
