PAGASA Says LPA & Habagat to Bring Rains Over Parts of the Philippines
PAGASA LATEST UPDATE – The state weather bureau reported that a low-pressure area will bring rains over parts of the country.
On Wednesday (September 13, 2023), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. A low-pressure area will affect the country’s weather conditions.
PAGASA reported that a Low-Pressure Area was located 610 kilometers East of Itbayat, Batanes. It will be affecting the western sections of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The LPA has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone.
The trough of a low-pressure area will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over the Bicol Region, Aurora, Quezon, Visayas, Palawan including Kalayaan Islands, and Occidental Mindoro.
The southwest monsoon will bring similar weather conditions over Metro Manila, Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, BARMM, SOCCSKSARGEN, MIMAROPA, the rest of CALABARZON and Central Luzon, La Union, Pangasinan, and Benguet.
“Magiging maulap ang kalangitan at mataas din ang tyansa ng pag-ulan, pagkidlat, at pagkulog dulot ng habagat dito sa bahagi ng Metro Manila, nalalabing bahagi pa ng Central Luzon at Calabarzon, maging dito sa bahagi ng Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and Palawan),” said Pagasa weather specialist Grace Castañeda.
Habagat and the localized thunderstorms will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over the remaining parts of the country.
“Huwag pa rin po natin kalilimutan ‘yung mga pananggalang natin dito sa mga pag-ulan na ito,” she added.
The weather agency has warned the public of possible flash floods and landslides due to moderate to at times heavy rains and severe thunderstorms.
The coastal water condition over Northern Luzon and the remaining parts of the country will be slight to moderate, according to PAGASA.
