LPA enters PAR, to bring rains to Mindanao

By Ellalyn De Vera-Ruiz

The low pressure area (LPA) off the eastern coast has entered the Philippine area of responsibility on Wednesday, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

Weather specialist Ana Clauren said the LPA was estimated at 970 kilometers east-southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur on Wednesday morning.

The weather disturbance is less likely to develop into a tropical cyclone but may bring rains over the eastern section of Mindanao in the next few days, she said.

Clauren noted that cloudy skies with scattered light to moderate rains may affect eastern Mindanao by Thursday and Friday.

The weather condition is expected to improve by Saturday, she added.

Meanwhile, warm and humid weather conditions due to the easterlies may prevail across most of the country.

However, the warm mornings may lead to sudden but short-lived rains in the afternoon or evening. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers in the afternoon or evening may persist until the weekend.

PAGASA warned of possible flash floods in low-lying areas or landslides in mountainous communities during severe thunderstorms.

It has not issued a gale warning and fisherfolk and seafarers are safe to sail. Slight to moderate seas will prevail over the entire country.
