New LPA spotted outside PAR

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.
