PAGASA Says LPAs Trough & Habagat to Affect PH Weather Condition
The state weather bureau PAGASA reported that trough of a low-pressure area and habagat will bring rains over parts of the country.
On Tuesday (July 18, 2023), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. The LPA’s trough and the southwest monsoon will affect the country’s weather condition.
PAGASA reported that a low-pressure area was last spotted 810 kilometers east of Northeastern Mindanao. It may develop into a tropical cyclone within 24 hours.
The southwest monsoon will bring rainshowers over Luzon and Visayas while the low-pressure area will be affecting Mindanao.
“Sa kasalukuyan ay wala itong direct effect sa anumang bahagi ng bansa, ngunit ang trough or extension nito ngayong araw ay magdudulot ng kalat-kalat na pag-ulan sa silangang bahagi ng Mindanao,” weather specialist Grace Castañeda said.
The trough or extension of the LPA will bring cloudy weather condition with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Caraga and the Davao Region.
“Nakikita natin na posible itong kumilos pa-northwestward at maaari itong lumapit sa area ng northern Luzon sa mga susunod na araw. [Ngunit] meron pa ring posibilidad na magbago ang ating scenario dito sa LPA na ito so continuous monitoring pa rin po tayo,” Castañeda added.
Habagat will bring similar weather condition over Zambales and Bataan.
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 dlash floods or landslides due to moderate to at times heavy rains.
Meanwhile, the coastal water condition over Luzon and the western section of Visayas will be moderate to rough. The remaining parts of the archipelago will have slight to moderate surrounding sea conditions.
