Forecast Weather Conditions

PAGASA locates the Low-Pressure Area (LPA) 195 km North of Legazpi City, Albay or 210 km East of Infanta, Quezon (14.9°N, 123.6°E). Based on the gathered data, the possibility of the LPA transforming into a Tropical Cyclone will not be ruled out. In this case, the presence of the LPA, the Shear Line’s appearance, and the Northern Monsoon’s continuous effect will cause rainy weather in most regions in the country today.

Bicol Region, Mainland Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, Quezon, and Northern Samar will have “cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms” due to the LPA and the Shear Line. This weather condition will cause “possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to heavy with, at times, intense rains.”

The LPA with localized thunderstorms will also affect Mindanao, the rest of Visayas, and MIMAROPA, and they are going to bring “partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.” Residents in these areas should prepare for “possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.”

The Northeast Monsoon will bring varying effects to the regions of Northern Luzon. The rest of Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Ilocos Norte will have “cloudy skies with rains,” bringing “possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate with, at times, heavy rains.” On the other hand, Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will only experience “partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains,” bringing ” no significant impact” on the land areas.
