MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is monitoring a low pressure area (LPA) brewing near the southern section of the country.

As of 10:00 AM Wednesday (May 12), the LPA was estimated at 595 kilometers East of Davao City.

It is forecast to move generally westward or west-northwestward towards Mindanao but is less likely to develop into a tropical depression in the next 24 hours.

PAGASA said the trough of LPA will bring light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Surigao del Sur and Davao Oriental in the next 24 hours.

Under these conditions, isolated to scattered flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides are likely during heavy or prolonged rainfall especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps.

Adjacent or nearby areas may also experience flooding in the absence of such rainfall occurrence due to surface runoff or swelling of river channels.

The public and disaster risk reduction and management offices concerned are advised to take appropriate measures and monitor regular updates on this weather disturbance through the agency’s official website.

Expect colder days as PAGASA announces onset of amihan season

Aileen Cerrudo   •   October 26, 2021

MANILA, Philippines—Expect colder days ahead after the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced the onset of northeast monsoon or amihan season in the country.

PAGASA also observed gradual cooling of the surface air temperature over the northeastern part of Luzon.

“For the past several days, strong to gale-force northeasterly winds have prevailed over Northern Luzon due to the strengthening of the high-pressure system over Siberia and enhanced by passing of low- pressure areas (LPAs),” according to PAGASA

Surges of cold temperatures may also be expected in the coming months, the state weather bureau added.

Meanwhile, with the on-going La Niña, NE monsoon rainfall may be enhanced and could trigger floods, flash floods, and rain-induced landslides over susceptible areas. PAGASA reminded local government units and the public to take precautionary measures. AAC
