MANILA, Philippines – The state weather bureau PAGASA said Wednesday, 30 October 2019, that quake-hit parts of Mindanao will experience cloudy skies with scattered rains due to localized thunderstorm.
PAGASA also monitored a low-pressure area (LPA) located 865 kilometers east of the city of Davao.
Weather specialist Lorie Dela Cruz said, the LPA has no direct effect and is unlikely to develop into a tropical cyclone.
The LPA that left the Philippine Responsibility Area (PAR) has also strengthened into a tropical storm.
It was located 895 kilometers west of southern Luzon, packing winds of up to 65 km/h near the center and gusts up to 80 km/h
Dela Cruz also added, the LPA is not seen to impact any part of the country.
Meanwhile, Bicol Region and the Aurora, Quezon, Cagayan and Isabela provinces will experience cloudy skies with intermittent rain showers and thunderstorms due to easterlies.
The northeast monsoon or Amihan will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains over Batanes and Babuyan Islands.
Due to localized thunderstorms, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will also be partly cloudy to cloudy skies with scattered rain showers. (Marian Andrei Sinamban/IAMIGO/CNS)
