LPA detected near Palawan; LPA, ITCZ to bring cloudy skies, rainy weather to Mimaropa, Western Visayas
MANILA, Philippines — A low pressure area (LPA) and the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) will bring cloudy skies and rainy weather to the Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan) and Western Visayas regions on Tuesday, the state weather service said.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country are expected to have a fair weather condition with partly cloudy to cloudy skies with possible rain showers due to thunderstorms.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), in its early morning update, said that as of 3 a.m., the LPA was spotted over the coastal waters of Dumaran, Palawan.
“Isang low pressure area ang nabuo dito po sa bahagi ng Sulu Sea, kanilang alas tres ng umaga umaga ito ay nasa coastal waters ng Dumaran, Palawan,” Pagasa weather specialist Ariel Rojas said.
(A low pressure area was formed in the Sulu Sea, and at three o’clock in the morning, it was over the coastal waters of Dumaran, Palawan.)
“Ang LPA na ito ay mababa ang tiyansang na maging isang bagyo, in the next 24 hours ay kikilos pakanluran patungo sa West Philippine Sea at possibleng magdisipate or malusaw din,” Rojas added.
(This LPA has a low chance of becoming a typhoon in the next 24 hours and will move west towards the West Philippine Sea, where it will dissipate.)
“Dahil sa epekto ng LPA at ITCZ, ang Mimaropa ay makakaranas ng maulap na kalangitan na may kalat-kalat na pag-ulan,” Rojas said.
(Due to the effects of LPA and ITCZ, Mimaropa will experience cloudy skies with scattered rains.)
“Dahil din sa epekto ng ITCZ makakaranas din ng makulimlim na kalangitan na may kalat-kalat na pag-ulan sa Western Visayas,” he added.
(Also due to the effect of ITCZ, Western Visayas will also experience scattered rains and cloudy skies.)
No gale warning is in effect in any of the seaboards nationwide, Pagasa added.
