LPA to trigger rains across Philippines — PAGASA

A low pressure area (LPA) off Cagayan will bring rain in a large swath of the country, according to state weather bureau PAGASA on Monday.

In its latest bulletin, PAGASA said the LPA was seen 230 kilometers east-northeast of Casiguran, Aurora or 240 kilometers east of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan as of 3 p.m.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms are forecast in Metro Manila and the rest of the country due to the LPA and the localized thunderstorms.

Cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are expected in Cordillera Administrative Region, Bicol Region, mainland Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, and Quezon.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon (Amihan) will continue to affect extreme Northern Luzon, casting cloudy skies with rains in Batanes and Babuyan Islands.

Forecast winds in Luzon will be moderate to strong, to be accompanied by moderate to rough waters. Visayas and Mindanao will experience light to moderate forecast winds and slight to moderate coastal waters.

The sun will set at 6:02 p.m. It will rise Tuesday at 6:18 a.m.—Sundy Locus/AOL, GMA Integrated News
