LPA trough, ‘ami­han’ af­fect­ing PH

Tempo - - News - (Alexan­dria San Juan)

The trough of a low pres­sure area spot­ted near Min­danao will con­tinue to bring cloudy skies and rain­show­ers in the re­gion, while the north­east mon­soon or “ami­han” will still pre­vail over Lu­zon and Visayas.

In a weather bul­letin is­sued yes­ter­day morn­ing, the Philip­pine At­mo­spheric, Geo­phys­i­cal, and As­tro­nom­i­cal Ser­vices Ad­min­is­tra­tion said that the ex­ten­sion of the LPA will still af­fect Min­danao, bring­ing cloudy skies with scat­tered rain­show­ers and thun­der­storms in the area.

The LPA was spot­ted 1,290 kilo­me­ters east south­east of Min­danao and still out­side the Philip­pine Area of Re­spon­si­bil­ity, PA­GASA said.

Weather spe­cial­ist Menro Men­doza of PA­GASA said that the LPA is not ex­pected to en­ter PAR and has a slim chance of de­vel­op­ing into a trop­i­cal de­pres­sion.

PA­GASA warned res­i­dents on pos­si­ble flash floods or land­slides due to scat­tered light to mod­er­ate to at times heavy rains.

The north­east mon­soon con­tin­ues to af­fect Lu­zon and Visayas.

Bi­col re­gion and Eastern Visayas will ex­pe­ri­ence cloudy skies with light to mod­er­ate rains due to the ami­han.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with iso­lated light rains will pre­vail over Metro Manila and the rest of Lu­zon and of Visayas also due to the north­east mon­soon.
