LPA to bring cloudy skies, scattered rains over eastern Visayas, Masbate, Sorsogon


Eastern Visayas, Masbate, and Sorsogon will have cloudy skies with scattered to widespread rains and thunderstorms on Wednesday brought about by the the Low Pressure Area (LPA) [formerly Agaton] with possible flash floods or landslides during moderate to at times heavy rains, PAGASA said in its forecast.

At 3 a.m. Wednesday, the LPA was estimated at 65 kilometers southeast of Guiuan, Eastern Samar.

The weather bureau continues to monitor Typhoon Malakas (formerly Basyang), an active tropical cyclone outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

As of 3 a.m., Malakas was estimated to be located at 1,545 kilometers east of central Luzon with maximum sustained winds of 150 kilometers per hour near the center, gustiness of up to 185kph and moving northeastward at 10kph.

The rest of Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, the rest of Bicol Region, Marinduque, Romblon, and Quezon will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms also due to the LPA with possible flash floods or landslides during times of light to moderate or heavy rains.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms with possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.

The eastern seaboards of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao will experience moderate to strong wind speed moving in the northeast to northwest direction while coastal waters will be moderate to rough.

Extreme northern Luzon will experience moderate to strong wind speed moving in the northeast to east direction while coastal waters will be moderate to rough.

The rest of the country will experience light to moderate wind speed moving in the west to northwest direction while coastal waters will be slight to moderate.

Sunrise will be at 5:44 a.m., sunset at 6:10 p.m. -- BAP/KG, GMA News
