PAGASA: LPA, ITCZ to bring rains across PH

A low pressure area (LPA) embedded along the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) will continue to spur rains over a large swath of the country on Tuesday.

State weather bureau PAGASA said the LPA was last seen 210 kilometers east-southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur as of 3 p.m.

The two weather systems are expected to bring cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms in Romblon, Bicol Region, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms due to the easterlies and the localized thunderstorms.

Flash floods and landslides may occur in the affected areas due to the rainfall, according to PAGASA.

Meanwhile, light to moderate winds and slight to moderate coastal water conditions will prevail in the country.

The highest temperature hit 36.1°C at 2 p.m. while the lowest was 24.9°C at 6 a.m.

The sun will set at 6:13 p.m. It will rise Wednesday at 5:33 a.m. —Sundy Locus/ VAL, GMA Integrated News
