LPA dis­si­pates, forms

Tempo - - Editorial -

The low-pres­sure area east of Min­danao dis­si­pated yes­ter­day but a new LPA was spot­ted west of South­ern Lu­zon, which could bring moder­ate to heavy rains and thun­der­storms over Palawan.

The Philip­pine At­mo­spheric, Geo­phys­i­cal, and Astro­nom­i­cal Ser­vices Ad­min­is­tra­tion said the LPA south­east of Gen­eral San­tos City has dis­si­pated but an­other LPA was es­ti­mated at 100 kilo­me­ters north of Puerto Princesa City.

PAGASA warned of moder­ate to heavy rains and thun­der­storms over Palawan that may trig­ger flash floods and land­slides.

Mean­while, the warm and hu­mid east­er­lies com­ing from the Pa­cific Ocean will bring cloudy skies with scat­tered rain show­ers and thun­der­storms over Bili­ran, East­ern Sa­mar, Leyte, North­ern Sa­mar, Sa­mar, South­ern Leyte, Zam­boanga del Norte, Zam­boanga del Sur, and Zam­boanga Sibugay.

Flash floods and land­slides caused by scat­tered light to moder­ate with at times heavy rains, as well as light­ning and strong winds, are likely over these ar­eas, PAGASA said.

It added that Metro Manila and the rest of the coun­try will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with iso­lated rain show­ers or thun­der­storms due to lo­cal­ized thun­der­storms.

Iso­lated heavy rains, light­ning, and strong winds are pos­si­ble over the me­trop­o­lis. (El­la­lyn V. Ruiz)
