PAGASA Says LPA’s Trough and Southwest Monsoon to Bring Scattered Rains Over Parts of the Country
PAGASA LATEST UPDATE – The state weather bureau reported that LPA’s trough and habagat will bring scattered rains over parts of the country.
On Wednesday (September 27, 2023), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. The trough of a low-pressure area and the southwest monsoon will affect the country’s weather conditions.
PAGASA weather specialist Obet Badrina reported that a low-pressure area outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility was last located 1,425 kilometers east of extreme northern Luzon.
Bardrina said that LPA’s trough will bring cloudy weather with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Mindanao, Central Visayas, and Eastern Visayas.
“Base sa pinakahuling datos natin, maaaring itong LPA na ito ay pumasok sa Philippine area of responsibility sa araw na ito, bagamat sa ngayon ay medyo maliit pa rin ang tiyansa na ito ay maging bagyo,” Badrina said.
The habagat will bring similar weather conditions over Palawan including Kalayaan Islands and Occidental Mindoro. Flash floods or landslides are expected in these areas due to moderate to at times heavy rains.
The trough of LPA and localized thunderstorms will also bring partly cloudy to cloudy weather with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the remaining parts of the country.
“Yung trough o extension ng low pressure area ang magdadala ng maulap na kalangitan na may mga pag-ulan sa malaking bahagi ng Mindanao, ganoon na din sa Central and Eastern Visayas,” he added.
Possible flash floods or landslides are expected during severe thunderstorms, according to the weather agency.
“Posible pa rin yung mga pag-ulan, mga isolated rain showers and thunderstorms kadalasan sa hapon hanggang sa gabi. Minsan, pwedeng magkaroon ng malalakas na pag-ulan, bagamat hindi ito magtatagal. Dulot ito ng mga localized thunderstorms,” Badrina reported.
Meanwhile, the coastal water condition over the rest of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao will be slight to moderate, according to PAGASA.
