Rains due to 2 LPAs

Two low-pressure areas embedded in the Intertropical Convergence Zone will continue to bring rains in Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao, the state weather bureau said yesterday.

The two LPAs were tracked over the West Philippine Sea and east of Mindanao.

As of 10 a.m., the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration said the first LPA was over the West Philippine Sea or 435 kilometers west of Iba, Zambales.

The second LPA is outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility or 1,620 kms east of Mindanao. This LPA is expected to develop into a tropical depression and will enter PAR within the next 24 hours.

Once it intensifies into a tropical cyclone, it will be named “Ambo,” the first to affect the country this year.

Today until Monday, the whole country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with high chances of some isolated rain showers or thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening. (Chito A. Chavez)
