PAGASA forecasts rainy week
MANILA – The tropical storm in the southern part of Japan is currently enhancing the southwest monsoon in the Philippines.
In an interview with radio dzMM on Monday, PAGASA weather forecaster Meno Mendoza said this will bring moderate to heavy rains in parts of the country possibly for a week.
Based on the weather bureau’s 24-hour forecast, Mendoza said Metro Manila, CALABARZON, and central Luzon will experience cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.
The rest of Luzon and Visayas will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms. Mindanao, on the other hand, will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, Mendoza said that at 4 a.m. Monday, the low pressure area (LPA) was spotted at 750 kilometers east of Casiguran, Aurora.
It will bring rains in the eastern part of Luzon and Visayas.
Mendoza said the weather bureau is expecting this LPA to become a tropical depression in the next 24-48 hours.
If it enters the Philippine area of responsibility, it will possibly threaten the Northern Luzon.
