PAGASA Says HPA & LPA to Affect PH Weather Condition

PAGASA LATEST UPDATE – The state weather bureau has reported that brighter weather will prevail in Luzon, while heat persists over Visayas.

On Monday (April 22, 2024), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. The trough or extension of a low-pressure area will affect the country’s weather conditions.

PAGASA is monitoring a low-pressure area outside the Philippine area of responsibility. It has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone but it will bring high chances of rain over Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi.


“Malapit ito sa equator at hindi natin [ito] inaasahan na magiging bagyo, pero ‘yung mga kaulapan, kasama na ang trough o extension nito ang siyang magdadala ng mas malaking tiyansa o malaking pag ulan partikular na sa bahagi ng Basilan, Sulu at Tawi-Tawi,” state weather agency expert Obet Badrina.

The LPA’s trough will bring cloudy weather conditions with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi.

The ridge of high pressure extends over the eastern section of Northern Luzon. Hot and humid weather will still be experienced, particularly in Luzon and Visayas.


“Kaya makikita niyo dito sa ating satellite images [ay] halos wala masyadong kaulapan dito sa may bahagi ng Luzon. Isa ho kasi sa indikasyon ‘yan ng high pressure area – hindi masyadong nabubuo ‘yung mga kaulapan. Kaya mainit na panahon pa rin ang mararanasan, partikular na dito sa may Luzon at Kabisayaan,” Bardina added.

The 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 residents in the affected areas for possible flash floods or landslides during moderate to at times heavy rains.

Meanwhile, the coastal water condition over the entire country will be slight to moderate, according to PAGASA.
