PAGASA: Trough of LPA outside PAR affecting Mindanao


WEATHER UPDATE — According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the trough or extension of the Low-Pressure Area (LPA) spotted outside of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) brings cloudy skies and rains over Mindanao.

The LPA spotted outside PAR is currently affecting the weather conditions of most of Mindanao. However, DOST-PAGASA Weather Specialist Obet Badrina reports that the LPA still has a low chance of turning into a Tropical Depression due to its weak circulation.

The trough also extends to areas in Eastern Visayas and Bohol.

Most of Luzon and Visayas are forecast to have fair weather with chances of isolated light rains showers. Meanwhile, the Northeast Monsoon or Amihan continues to bring colder weather to northern Luzon.


For today’s weather forecast, the majority of Luzon will have fair weather with chances of isolated rain showers, particularly in northern and central Luzon. Meanwhile, Palawan may expect rains brought by localized thunderstorms.

Temperatures in Luzon range from 20 degrees Celsius to 32 degrees Celsius.

On the other hand, the trough or extension of the LPA brings rain over Eastern Visayas, while the western and central sections are forecast to have fair weather. However, cloudy skies are possible in the next three days due to the LPA.

Temperatures range from 14 degrees Celsius to 31 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, most of Mindanao, especially the eastern section, such as Davao and Caraga Region, is forecast to experience rain due to the trough of the LPA. By afternoon, Western Mindanao, including Zamboanga, has a high chance of rain brought by the same weather system.

Temperatures range from 23 degrees Celsius to 33 degrees Celsius.

At the moment, PAGASA has not issued gale warnings. However, residents in coastal areas in the northern, eastern, and southern sections of the country are warned of moderate to rough seas with waves reaching up to 2.8 meters.
