MANILA, Philippines — The through or extension of a low pressure area (LPA) will trigger scattered rain showers in parts of the Visayas and Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) reported Monday morning.
The LPA’s trough will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms to Eastern Visayas, Central Visayas Northern Mindanao, and the Caraga and Davao regions.
Pagasa said that the LPA is not expected to enter the country’s area of responsibility.
“Itong low pressure area na ito ay hindi natin inaasahan na lalapit pa or papasok sa ating Philippine area of responsibility,” Pagasa weather specialist Grace Castañeda said.
(This low pressure area is not expected to approach or enter the Philippine area of responsibility.)
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have generally fair weather with possible isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
No gale warning was raised over the country’s seaboards.
“Sa kasalukuyan po ay wala tayong nakataas na gale warning ngunit ibayong pag-iingat pa rin po para sa mga maglalayag sa mga dagat-baybayin po sa ating karagatan sapagkat magiging katamtaman hanggang maalon pa rin po ‘yung magiging kalagayan po ng mga dagat-baybayin ng ating bansa,” Castañeda advised.
(Currently, no gale warning is raised but sailors are urged to be cautious.)
