PAGASA Says LPA’s Trough to Bring Cloudy Skies & Scattered Rains Over Parts of PH

PAGASA LATEST UPDATE – The state weather bureau reported that a trough of a low-pressure area will bring scattered rains over parts of the country.

On Wednesday (April 17, 2024), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. The trough of a Low-Pressure Area will affect the country’s weather conditions.

PAGASA weather specialist Obet Badrina reported that a trough of a Low-Pressure Area will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over the Davao Region and SOCCSKSARGEN.


It is still unlikely that a low-pressure area (LPA) near Mindanao’s southern region that is outside the Philippine area of responsibility will develop into a tropical storm.

“Ang trough o extension ng low pressure area nakakaapekto partikular dito sa may bahagi ng Davao region at dito sa may bahagi ng Soccsksargen,” Badrina said.

The ridge of a High-Pressure Area will be extending over the eastern sections of Northern and Central Luzon. It will bring warm weather in parts of Luzon, but some isolated rains and thunderstorms are still expected.


The localized thunderstorms will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over the entire Visayas, Palawan, including Kalayaan Islands, and Occidental Mindoro.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country are expected to experience similar weather conditions.

During severe thunderstorms, the residents in the affected areas are advised to take precautionary measures for possible flash floods or landslides.

Meanwhile, the heat index in Metro Manila reaches 41 degrees Celsius at the NAIA, Pasay City station, and 40 degrees Celsius at the Science Garden in Quezon City.

The coastal water condition over the eastern sections of Northern and Central Luzon as well as the remaining parts of the country will be slight to moderate, according to PAGASA.
