Brewing storm across the central Philippines, rains expected


MANILA, Philippines — The state weather bureau PAGASA on Monday, 28 October 2019, said a low-pressure area is crossing the central Philippines and will bring rains to vast swaths of land in the country.

The brewing storm was spotted across the Sulu Sea, around 150 kilometers west of Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental at 3 a.m. Monday, 28 October 2019.


It is expected to cross the landmass of Palawan later Monday, PAGASA weather specialist Loriedin Dela Cruz said.


She added that Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol, Bicol Region, Zamboanga Peninsula, and the provinces of Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi will experience scattered rains and thunderstorm that might trigger floods or landslide.


Before intensifying into a tropical depression and heading to Taiwan, the weather system will leave the Philippine area on Tuesday, Dela Cruz said.


Meanwhile, the northeastern Amihan or cold winds will bring light rains across Batanes and Babuyan’s northernmost island, PAGASA said.  (Marian Andrei Sinamban/IAMIGO/CNS)
