Low pressure area brings cloudy skies, rain over parts of PH—Pagasa

A LOW pressure area (LPA) embedded along the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) is expected to bring cloudy skies and rains over parts of Visayas and Mindanao on Tuesday, the state-run weather bureau said.

The LPA is at 795 kilometers (km) east of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte as of 8 a.m., the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its advisory.

It added that the weather system may likely develop into a tropical depression over the Philippine Sea within 24 hours and would be named “Domeng”.

“While its chances of making landfall remains small, the LPA’s outer rainbands may bring moderate to heavy rains over the eastern section of the country,” weather specialist Shelly Ignacio said.

Eastern and Central Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Caraga and Davao region will have cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms due to the LPA.

Bicol region, Western Visayas, and rest of Mindanao will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms caused by the ITCZ.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers because of localized thunderstorms, Pagasa said. GLEE JALEA
