LPA trough to bring rain showers over eastern part of Mindanao

The eastern section of Mindanao will have rain showers on Sunday due to the trough or extension of a low pressure area (LPA), PAGASA said in its weather forecast.

Dinagat Islands, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, and Davao Oriental will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the LPA's trough. Moderate to at times heavy rains may lead to flash floods or landslides.

Batanes and Babuyan Islands may expect partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with isolated light rains due to the Northeast Monsoon (Amihan).

Metro Manila and the rest of the country meanwhile will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms. During severe thunderstorms, flash floods or landslides may occur.

Coastal waters will be moderate to rough in the seaboards of Extreme Northern Luzon, and slight to moderate in the rest of the country.

Sunrise was at 6:02 a.m. while sunset will be at 6:07 p.m. —KG, GMA Integrated News
