Pagasa: LPA to bring more rain

Sunday, September 24, 2017

ANOTHER low pressure area (LPA) is expected to affect the eastern sections of the Visayas and Mindanao this week, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) reported.

Pagasa, in its weekly weather outlook, said eastern Visayas, provinces in Caraga and Davao region will have scattered light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms, starting on Sunday, September 24, following the LPA.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers and thunderstorms.

Scattered light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms will prevail over the Visayas, Bicol region, and the eastern section of Luzon by Tuesday, September 26.

The rest of the country will be affected by localized rainshowers and thunderstorms with partly cloudy to cloudy skies.

By Wednesday and Thursday, the LPA is expected to cross the Visayas and will bring cloudy skies with scattered light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms over southern Luzon, Visayas and the eastern sections of northern and central Luzon.

The rest of the country will be affected by localized rainshowers and thunderstorms with partly cloudy to cloudy skies.

LPA is expected to weaken and dissipate by Friday, September 29. Hence, the entire country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with localized rainshowers and thunderstorms.

Pagasa assured no tropical cyclone is expected to develop or enter the Philippine area of responsibility within the forecast period. But the outlook will be updated as soon as significant changes in the weather pattern occur. (ICT)
