MANILA, Philippines — Rains are expected for All Saints’ Day, Friday, 01 November 2019, due to a low-pressure area.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the low- pressure area (LPA) it was tracking is now 240 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur in a newsletter released Friday.
The LPA will bring scattered rain and thunderstorms to Bicol, Visayas, Caraga, Northern Mindanao, Zamboanga Peninsula, Palawan.
Meanwhile, the north-eastern monsoon or hanging Amihan is affecting Northern Luzon.
Light rains can be experienced in Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon and the rest of Cagayan Valley.
