Philippine Weather Forecast: February 8, 2018 | 2 LPAs monitored, Amihan persists

The Low Pressure Area (LPA) within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) was last spotted at 505 kilometers (km) east of Guiuan, Eastern Samar. PAGASA said the possibility for this weather disturbance to develop into a Tropical Depression remains slim.

Meanwhile, another LPA is being monitored outside the PAR, particularly in the east of Mindanao. While it is still too far to directly affect any part of the country, it is expected to develop into a Tropical Depression. PAGASA is not ruling out the probability that it may enter Philippine premises in the next few days.

The Tail-End of a Cold Front is now affecting Eastern Visayas and Caraga, where it is expected to bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. If rains persist for hours, flash floods and landslides may transpire in low-lying and mountainous areas.

Hanging Amihan prevails in Luzon, bringing cloudy skies with scattered rains in Cagayan Valley, the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), Central Luzon, Bicol Region and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon. Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon and Visayas may experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains while the remaining parts of the archipelago will have generally fair weather condition, apart from isolated thunderstorms mostly in the latter part of the day.

In an interview with Panahon TV, PAGASA Weather Forecaster Shelly Ignacio said that the Amihan season may last until mid-February. The weather is expected to cool further in the coming days or weeks.

Gale warning is up in the following areas, where rough to very rough sea conditions remain a threat to fishing boats and other small seacraft:
– seaboards of Northern Luzon
– eastern seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon
