LPA to bring rains over Metro Manila, nearby provinces-A A +A
Thursday, August 28, 2014
THE low pressure area (LPA) spotted near the vicinity of Tagbilaran City will continue to bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers in most part of the country within the next 24 hours, the state weather bureau said Thursday.
Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said the LPA has a small chance of developing into a tropical depression.
"The cloud band, which is a potential cyclone, has already disorganized since it already hit the landmass," she said.
Areas most likely to experience the effects of the LPA until Friday are Metro Manila, Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan), Bicol Region, Central Luzon, Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula and Northern Mindanao, while the rest of the country will have cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.
Aurelio said no gale warning was issued yet and sea travels will still be safe even for small sea crafts.
"Light to moderate winds blowing from the northeast to southeast will prevail over Luzon and coming from the southeast to southwest over the rest of the country," Pagasa said in an advisory.
"The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate," it added. (Sunnex)
