LPA east of Luzon has small chance to intensify into tropical cyclone -- PAGASA

The low pressure area (LPA) hovering east of Luzon has a small chance to develop into a tropical cyclone, the state weather bureau said on Friday.

PAGASA weather forecaster Fernando Cada said that as of 4 p.m. the LPA was spotted some 750 km east of Casiguran, Aurora (16.5ºN, 130.0ºE).

He noted that it was not expected to directly affect the country in the next two to three days since it would still be too far away to the country's landmass.

However, Cada said due to the trough or extended cloudiness and wind convergence, the LPA will bring light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms over the regions of Bicol, Eastern and Central Visayas, Caraga and Davao in the next 24 hours.

Based on numerical models, Cada said the weather disturbance has a slim chance to intensify into a tropical cyclone.

But Cada said the weather bureau will continue to monitor the LPA since it is still in the sea.

In case it intensifies into a tropical depression within the Philippine territory, Quitlong said it would be named “Kanor” -- it will be the second cyclone to visit the country this month and the 11th for this year.

The weather bureau still expects two or three more tropical cyclones to enter the country this month.

Cada said many parts of the country will continue to experience fair weather until weekend.

He said the rest of country including Metro Manila will have sunny to cloudy skies with possible isolated rains due to localized thunderstorms until Sunday. (PNA)
