PAGASA warns of rains, landslides in Palawan, Visayas because of LPA

Weather bureau PAGASA on Thursday warned of rains brought by a low pressure area (LPA) in Palawan and the Visayas region that may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

PAGASA said as of 2 a.m. Thursday, the LPA was spotted 160 kilometers east southeast of Puerto Princesa City.

The LPA is expected to bring scattered rains over the entire Palawan and portions of central and western Visayas.

Speaking to dzMM, PAGASA weather forecaster Manny Mendoza said the LPA is not likely to intensify into a tropical depression.

The weather system is also enhancing the easterlies, or winds coming from the Pacific, resulting in a cloudy weather over Bicol region.

Mendoza added the LPA will leave the Philippine area of responsibility within the next two days.

The rest of the country, meanwhile, will have mostly cloudy skies that will bring scattered rain showers or thunderstorms.

PAGASA also issued a gale warning over the northern and eastern seaboards of norther Luzon; and eastern seaboard of central and southern Luzon.
