PAGASA Says LPA Spotted Outside PAR
The state weather bureau PAGASA reported that a low-pressure area has been spotted outside PAR, it may develop into a tropical cyclone.
On Monday (June 5, 2023), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. Two weather systems will affect the country’s weather condition.
PAGASA reported that a possible low pressure area may enter the Philippine area of responsibility by Monday or Tuesday. It may develop into a tropical cyclone and enhance the southwest monsoon.
The weather agency is also monitoring another LPA over the West Philippine Sea. It is heading to southern China and is not expected to enter the country’s vicinity.
“Isa namang cloud cluster ang minomonitor natin sa kasalukuyan. Mas ito po ang expect natin maging low pressure area at pumasok sa Philippine area of responsibility. Patuloy natin itong imomonitor kasi posible po ngayong araw o bukas ito’y maging ganap na low pressure area,” said Pagasa weather specialist Obet Badrina.
The southwest monsoon or locally known as habagat will bring cloudy weather condition with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Western Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, and Palawan.
“Inaasahan pong papasok ito sa PAR sa mga susunod na araw. Bagamat di ito nakikitang maglalandfall, possible itong lumapit dyaan sa northern Luzon dyan sa Biyernes at magpalakas ng habagat,” he added.
The monsoon and localized thunderstorms will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
The weather agency has warned the public for possible flash floods and landslides during severe thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, the coastal water condition throughout the country will be slight to moderate, according to the weather bureau.
