PAGASA Says LPA and Southwest Monsoon to Bring Scattered Rain Over Parts of the Country
PAGASA LATEST UPDATE – The state weather bureau reported that a low-pressure area and the southwest monsoon will bring scattered rain over parts of the country.
On Thursday (September 28, 2023), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. A low-pressure area and habagat will affect the country’s weather conditions.
PAGASA is monitoring two low-pressure areas. The first LPA is already inside the PAR and was last seen at around 800 kilometers east of extreme northern Luzon and may dissipate today.
The other one is still outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility but may develop into a typhoon, according to weather specialist Patrick del Mundo.
“Yung low pressure area sa loob ng PAR ay posibleng mag-dissipate within the day, kaya naman sa mga susunod na oras ay wala itong magiging direktang epekto sa ano mang bahagi ng ating bansa, bagamat itong trough ng low pressure area na ito ang siyang nagdadala ng maulap na kalangitan na may kalat-kalat na pag-ulan especially sa may bahagi ng Visayas at Mindanao,” Del Mundo said.
The LPAs trough will bring cloudy weather conditions with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, and Davao Region.
Habagat will bring similar weather conditions over the northern portion of Palawan. Possible flash floods or landslides may occur due to moderate to at times heavy rains.
The LPA and localized thunderstorms will bring partly cloudy to cloudy weather with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
“Possible din yung mga malalakas na pag-ulan dulot nitong mga localized thunderstorms kaya pinaghahanda pa rin yung ating mga kababayan lalo na sa hapon at sa gabi sa mga malalakas na pagbuhos ng pag-ulan,” he added.
Flash floods or landslides are possible in those areas during severe thunderstorms, according to the weather bureau. Residents in the affected areas are advised to take precautionary measures.
Meanwhile, the coastal water condition over the rest of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao will be slight to moderate, according to PAGASA.
