A new weather disturbance was spotted outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Meno Mendoza, though the Low Pressure Area (LPA), located east of Visayas, has a slim chance of developing into a Tropical Cyclone, it will still induce rains.
Due to the trough or extension of the LPA, Bicol Region and Eastern Visayas will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms that can trigger flash floods or landslides. With the presence of the Northeast Monsoon, cloudy skies with scattered rains will be experienced in Cagayan Valley Region, Cordillera Administrative Region and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon. In the rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, generally fair weather will prevail except for chances of isolated rains. The remaining parts of the country can also enjoy fair weather conditions but with chances of localized thunderstorms.
Gale warning is still in effect in the northern seaboards of Northern Luzon, the western seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon, and the eastern seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon. These include coasts of Batanes, Calayan, Babuyan, Cagayan, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan and Isabela, Zambales, Bataan, Palawan, Aurora, Camarines Provinces, Catanduanes, and the eastern coast of Quezon including Polillo Island. Fishing boats and other small seacraft are prohibited from venturing while larger sea vessels are alerted against rough to very rough seas.
A new weather disturbance has developed within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). At 3:00AM today, the Low Pressure Area (LPA) was at 505 km east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur. According to PAGASA Weather Specialist Chris Perez, it has slim chance of developing into a tropical depression. Meanwhile, the Northeast Monsoon is affecting Northern and Central Luzon.
Today, Cagayan Valley Region, Cordillera Administrative Region and the province of Aurora will have cloudy skies with scattered rains. In Metro Manila, Ilocos Region and the rest of Central Luzon, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will prevail except for isolated rains. In Mindanao and Eastern Visayas, cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will be experienced. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers will dominate.
Here’s the replay of today’s interview:
The trough or extension of a new weather disturbance is affecting the country. Aside from this, Tail-end of a Cold Front and the Northeast Monsoon are also dominant.
In an interview with Panahon TV, PAGASA Weather Forecaster Meno Mendoza said that the Low Pressure Area (LPA) in Mindanao has dissipated but a new weather disturbance is being monitored outside PAR.
Due to the new LPA’s trough or extension, Visayas and Mindanao will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will make flash floods and landslides possible. For Metro Manila, Central Luzon, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, and Bicol Region, cloudy skies will be experienced with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. Over Cagayan Valley Region, residents can expect cloudy skies with scattered rains. In Ilocos Region and Cordillera Administrative Region partly cloudy to cloudy skies can be enjoyed only with isolated rains.
At 10:00 AM today, a Low Pressure Area (LPA) was spotted at 450 kilometers east of Guiuan, Eastern Samar. Through its 11:00 AM Weather Advisory, PAGASA said that the LPA may develop into a tropical cyclone within the next 24 to 48 hours. According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Robert Badrina, it may cross Eastern Visayas and Southern Luzon, and may bring rains in Metro Manila by Thursday until Saturday.
Apart from the LPA, the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) is causing rains in Palawan and Mindanao, while the Northeast Monsoon dampens Northern and Central Luzon.
Today, the Zamboanga Peninsula and Palawan will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the ITCZ. The LPA will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in Eastern Visayas, Caraga, and Davao Region. For Metro Manila and the regions of Cagayan Valley, Ilocos, Cordillera and Central Luzon, partly cloudy to cloudy skies will prevail with isolated light rains due to the Amihan. The rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
A new weather disturbance is forecast to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) this week.
According to PAGASA, the Low Pressure Area (LPA) previously spotted outside PAR has developed into a tropical depression. As of 10 AM, it was located 1,540 kilometers east of Mindanao. It has maximum sustained winds of 45 kph and gustiness of 60 kph, slowly moving at a west-northwest direction.
According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Loriedin dela Cruz, the LPA can possibly enter PAR within 24 hours. If this happens, the tropical depression will be given the local name “Dante,” this month’s second tropical cyclone.
Today, Easterlies or warm and humid air from the Pacific Ocean prevail in the eastern sections of the country. This weather system will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies or generally fair weather in the entire archipelago except for isolated rain showers or thunderstorms. Humid weather is still expected to prevail.
As we expect Tropical Depression (TD) Nona to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) this weekend, TD Onyok crossed the PAR line yesterday afternoon. According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Buddy Javier, it is forecast to make its landfall tomorrow afternoon or in the evening in the Caraga region. And as of 4:00 AM today, Onyok was last located at 700 kms. east-northeast of Mati City, Davao Oriental, with maximum sustained winds of 55 kph. It moves westward at 15 kph.
Meanwhile, Nona remains stationary at its location of 60 kms. east of Iba, Zambales. Javier adds that it may continuously weaken into a Low Pressure Area (LPA) in the next 24 hours. Public Storm Warning Signal number 1 is still raised over Pangasinan and Zambales.
With the two (2) tropical cyclones inside our boundary, rains with gusty winds prevail in the areas with Public Storm Warning Signal Number 1. Meanwhile, moderate to occasionally heavy rains and isolated thunderstorms are expected over Cagayn Valley, Cordillera, and the rest of Central Luzon and Ilocos Region, possibly triggering flash floods and landslides. Light to moderate rains are at expected over Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, Caraga and Davao Region. Fair weather conditions will be experienced in the rest of the archipelago.
Gale warning was raised in the seaboards of Northern Luzon, and the western and eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon. Because of the rough to very rough sea conditions, fisher folk and those with small seacraft are advised to avoid venturing into the said seaboards.
The Trough of Low Pressure Area (LPA) outside PAR will bring light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms over the provinces of Sarangani, South Cotabato and Davao del Sur. Meanwhile, cold weather coupled with light rains is expected in Batanes and the islands of Calayan and Babuyan as the Northeast Monsoon or the Amihan continues to affect the extreme Northern Luzon. Fair weather with a chance of isolated light rains is expected in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon. The rest of the country will enjoy fair weather conditions.
According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Buddy Javier, as of 2 AM today, the Low Pressure Area (LPA) was located at 1,700 kms. east of Mindanao. Said LPA might enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) tonight or tomorrow morning. It might intensify in the coming hours as a Tropical Cyclone as it enters our boundary. There is a big chance that it will make its landfall in the Bicol Region or Eastern Visayas, though there is still the possibility of recurvature.
The Northeast monsoon or the Amihan dominates Luzon, bringing moderate cold weather and light rains in Extreme Northern Luzon, particularly in the Cagayan Valley region. Meanwhile, the rest of Luzon will be experiencing fair weather with isolated light rains. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with a chance of rain showers or thunderstorms will prevail in the next hours over Visayas and Mindanao.
Though Amihan is bringing cold weather and lights rains, PAGASA weather forecaster Benison Estareja said that it is not enough to cure even just a little of the dry conditions, dry spells and droughts in some areas in the country.
Because of the strong winds associated with the Amihan, gale warning is still raised in the seaboards of Northern Luzon, and the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon. Fishermen and those with small seacraft are discouraged from venturing into the said seaboards due to the alert of big waves brought by the rough to very rough sea conditions.
Meanwhile, In-fa (Local name: Marilyn) has weakened to a Low Pressure Area or LPA. PAGASA said that it will dissipate in the coming hours as it moves towards the Pacific Ocean. In addition, we are not expecting another weather disturbance in the next three (3) days.
Metro Manila, Central Luzon, CALABARZON, Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas and the provinces of Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon will experience rainy weather due to the low pressure area (LPA).
The LPA was last located at 245 kms. east of Catarman, Northern Samar. PAGASA weather forecast Jun Galang said that it can develop into a tropical cyclone before crossing the Luzon area. This will bring rains over the weekends in most parts of Luzon.
Meanwhile, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms will prevail over the rest of the country.
