LPA, southwest monsoon continue to bring rains Tuesday
A low pressure area (LPA) and the southwest monsoon affecting the western section of Luzon will bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over most parts of the country, a weather specialist said on Tuesday.
Meno Mendoza of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the LPA, last seen 355 kilometers east of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte, may develop into a tropical depression within the next 24 to 48 hours.
Scattered rains and thunderstorms will prevail over Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao.
Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will experience isolated rain showers due to the southwest monsoon and localized thunderstorms. Rain showers are likely in the afternoon or at night, according to Mendoza.
Moderate to strong winds, and moderate to rough coastal waters will prevail over the northern and western sections of Luzon.
The rest of Luzon will have moderate winds and moderate seas.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate with slight to moderate coastal waters, PAGASA said. — Source:/(PNA)
