Northeasterly surface windflow, LPA trough to bring rains over parts of PH

The northeasterly surface windflow and trough or extension of a low pressure area (LPA) will bring rains over parts of the country on Monday, PAGASA said in its weather forecast.

Cagayan Valley will have cloudy skies with rains due to the northeasterly surface windflow affecting Northern and Central Luzon. Flash floods or landslides may result due to moderate to at times heavy rains.

Central Luzon, Ilocos Region, and Cordillera Administrative Region may expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains due to the northeasterly surface windflow.

PAGASA is monitoring the LPA which at 3 a.m. was estimated to be located at 905 km east of Mindanao.

The LPA's trough will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Eastern Visayas and Caraga. Moderate to at times heavy rains may result in flash floods or landslides.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to the LPA's trough or localized thunderstorms. During severe thunderstorms, flash floods or landslides may possibly occur.

Coastal waters will be moderate to rough in the seaboards of Luzon and the eastern section of Visayas, and slight to moderate elsewhere in the country.

Sunrise was at 5:46 a.m. Sunset will be at 6:09 p.m. —KG, GMA Integrated News
