The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration is closely monitoring a low-pressure area east of Southern Mindanao which has a high probability of intensifying into a tropical cyclone this week.
PAGASA-Weather Division Marine Meteorological Services Section chief Rene Paciente said the LPA could develop into a tropical depression upon its entry into the country’s area of responsibility by tomorrow.
Once it intensifies into a tropical depression inside the country’s vicinity, it will be given a local name of “Crising,” the third tropical cyclone for this year and first this month.
Warm and dry weather conditions associated with the sunny weather will prevail over the entire country, PAGASA said, with chances of some isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms due to the ridge of high pressure area and easterlies until Good Friday.
But by Black Saturday, Paciente said the potential cyclone will begin to trigger rains over the eastern sections of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon and Visayas will continue to have warm and dry weather conditions with chances of some isolated rain showers or thunderstorms during this period. (Ellalyn V. Ruiz)
