Rain showers, thunderstorms forecast over PH — Pagasa
ISOLATED rain showers and thunderstorms are expected over Metro Manila and the rest of the country due to the trough or extension of a low-pressure area (LPA) outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) in a 5 a.m. advisory said the LPA, however, has a slim chance of entering PAR and developing into a tropical depression in the coming days.PHOTO FROM DOST PAGASA
«Most parts of the country will likely have a generally fair weather condition over the [next] 24 hours except for isolated downpours and thunderstorms, especially in the afternoon or at night,» weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio said.
He said the Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, and Central Luzon will have partly cloudy to overcast skies with isolated light rains due to the northeast monsoon locally known as «amihan.»
The state-run weather agency said amihan will prevail in most parts of the country until over the weekend when scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will be experienced.
