Weather Bureau monitors two weather systems in PAR

QUEZON CITY (PIA) -- The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) continues to monitor two (2) Low Pressure Areas (LPA) in the Philippine Area of Responsibility but do not have any direct effects yet. The LPA inside the PAR at 970 km East of Eastern Visayas may develop into Tropical Depression in the next 24 to 48 hours. It will move generally Northwestward and is expected to recurve generally Northeastward.

While the other LPA outside of PAR at 910km West of Northern Luzon has a low chance of developing into a typhoon in the coming days.

The Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) continues to affect the western section of Southern Luzon. It will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in the Palawan area including Calayan Islands. While partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms in Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
The public is still advised to prepare safety measures relative to flooding and landslides that may be caused by continuous heavy rainfall.

Although there will be thunderstorms, generally fair-weather conditions are expected in the country, and hot and humid weather will be experienced from morning until noon.

As of today, there is no Gale Warning Issued, fishing boats, and other small seacrafts can venture out into the sea. However, those sailing out are advised to be alert for offshore thunderstorm activity which can bring strong winds and a slight increase in wave heights. (KSAA – PIA CPSD)
