According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the low pressure area (LPA) would deliver rain in a large portion of the country specifically in the Visayas, Mindanao and some parts of Luzon on Tuesday.
Aldczar Aurelio, a PAGASA weather specialist, said in the weather forecast at 4 a.m., that the LPA was last seen 100 kilometers east-southeast of Davao City, Davao Del Sur.
“Dahil sa epekto ng low pressure area, malaking bahagi ng ating bansa ang makakaranas ng maulap na kalangitan na may mga pag-ulan,” he said.
Although the LPA is not forecasted to develop into a tropical depression, Aurelio warned of the possibility of flash floods or landslides in areas affected by the weather disturbance due to moderate to heavy rainfall.
Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon, locally known as amihan, is impacting the weather in Northern Luzon, he said.
“Ang northeast monsoon o amihan ay naaapektuhan ang Northern Luzon. Inaasahan po natin na ito ay lalakas at maaapektuhan ngayong araw ang malaking bahagi ng Luzon,” Aurelio said.
The northeast monsoon will bring cloudy skies and light rains to Cagayan Valley, and partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains to Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon, according to PAGASA.
Rough to very rough seas will be experience in the Northern section of Luzon.
