LPA spotted north; ITCZ to bring rains over PH Tuesday

MANILA -- A low pressure area (LPA) was spotted 1,000 km east of Tuguegarao City, state weather agency Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Tuesday morning.

PAGASA said there is only a slim chance that this LPA will enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

However, the Intertropical Convergence Zone affecting southern Luzon and Visayas will continue to bring rains over the country, weather forecaster Gener Quitlong said.

In PAGASA's 24-hour forecast, the agency said cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and occasional heavy rains, gusty winds and lightning will prevail over Cagayan Valley, Mimaropa, Bicol, eastern and western Visayas, Aurora and Quezon.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies, isolated light to occasionally heavy rains, gusty winds and lightning.

Light to moderate winds will blow from northeast to northwest over Luzon and Visayas, and from southwest to west over Mindanao.

The country's coastal waters will be slight to moderate, PAGASA said.
