A low-pressure area was seen off east of Mindanao, outside of the Philippine Area Responsibility (PAR), state weather agency Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reports on Saturday, October 17.
In its daily live weather update, PAGASA stated that the LPA was last spotted 1,660 kilometers east of Mindanao.
PAGASA weather specialist Ezra Bulquerin reports that it may enter the PAR and bring rains.
Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon or ‘habagat’ continues to affect the western section of Southern Luzon. Due to the effects of the ‘habagat’, Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan), as well as the Zamboanga Peninsula in Mindanao may experience cloudy skies and scattered rain showers and thunderstorms within 24 hours.
PAGASA added that partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers are expected in Metro Manila and parts of the country brought by the ‘habagat,’ as well as localized thunderstorms.
Cloudy skies with light rains may be experienced in Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region and the Aurora province.
Meanwhile, the Ilocos Region and the rest of Central Luzon may also expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains due to the northeasterly surface windflow.
