The low pressure area (LPA) off the Pacific Ocean, which may enter the country’s area of responsibility by Wednesday, has a possibility of developing into a tropical cyclone.
Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said the LPA was estimated at 1,400 kilometers east of Mindanao around Tuesday.
Aurelio said the LPA is currently moving west, with chances of intensifying into a tropical depression. Should it become a tropical cyclone, it will be given a local name of “Marce.” It will move close to eastern Visayas or Mindanao and may bring light to moderate rains by Thursday, he pointed out.
PAGASA said warm and humid easterly winds will prevail over the eastern section of the country this Wednesday, which will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies over the whole country with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly over the eastern section.
