PAGASA Says LPA Embedded Along ITCZ to Affect PH Weather (October 16)

PAGASA Releases Latest Weather Update for Saturday (October 16)

The state weather bureau PAGASA reported that the low-pressure area (LPA) embedded along the ITCZ would bring cloudy skies and scattered rains over parts of the country.

On Saturday (October 16, 2021), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. The low-pressure area would affect the country’s weather condition.

PAGASA reported that the low-pressure area (LPA) at 405 kilometers west of Coron, Palawan embedded along the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). The weather disturbance would prevail in most parts of the country.


The LPA would bring partly cloudy to cloudy weather condition with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms over Bicol Region, Northern Samar, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon.

The provinces of Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Aurora, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Benguet, Ifugao, Abra, Mountain Province, Apayao and Kalinga would experience similar weather condition due to the ITCZ and localized thunderstorms.

Metro Manila and the remaining parts of the country would have the same weather.


Cloudy weather condition with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms are expected over Palawan with possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.

Pagasa weather specialist Grace Castañeda said that the LPA is moving away from the Philippine landmass and it will have no direct effect in any part of our country.

“Ayon nga po sa ating latest analysis at latest available data, ang movement ng low pressure area na ito ay palayo sa ating landmass, nakikita nga po natin na ngayong araw maging sa mga susunod na araw ay wala po itong direct effect sa anumang bahagi ng ating bansa,” Castañeda said.

Meanwhile, the coastal water condition over extreme Northern Luzon will be moderate to rough. The rest of northern Luzon and the rest of the country would have slight to moderate surrounding sea condition.
