LPA, Easterlies to bring rainshowers over Visayas, Mindanao

A low-pressure area (LPA) and the warm winds from the Pacific known as the Easterlies are expected to bring cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Visayas and Mindanao, PAGASA announced Wednesday.

In its 24-hour forecast, the weather agency said the LPA was estimated at 135 kilometers east of General Santos City at 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

PAGASA warned affected residents against possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to, at times, heavy rains.

Meanwhile, the Easterlies are expected to bring partly to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon.

Flash floods and landslides may occur during severe thunderstorms, according to PAGASA.

The synoptic station at the Science Garden, Diliman, Quezon City also recorded a minimum temperature of 23.5°C at 7 a.m. and a maximum temperature of 32.8°C at 2 p.m. — Joahna Lei Casilao/BM, GMA News
