PAGASA continues to monitor two LPAs inside PAR

Two weather disturbances inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) are now being continuously monitored by the state weather bureau.

In an interview Wednesday, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather forecaster Chris Perez said that as of 10 a.m. the LPA was spotted some 280 km east of Baler, Aurora (15.6°N, 124.3°E).

Perez said since the LPA is near it will bring light to moderate rains and thunderstorms in Metro Manila, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan), Calabrazon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon), Bicol region and Visayas.

Residents in these areas and local disaster risk reduction management councils concerned are advised to be alert and take all the necessary precautionary measures and monitor updates on this weather disturbance,"PAGASA said in its 11 a.m. advisory.

Meanwhile, Perez said the other Low Pressure Area was estimated at 1,020 km east of Northern Mindanao (10.2°N, 135.5°E).

He said the LPA was still far and does not affect the country.

Based on the numerical models, Perez said the two weather disturbances still have a slim chance to become a tropical depression.

Once it intensifies into a tropical depression inside the country, it will be locally named "Karding".

PAGASA expects two to three cyclones to visit the country this September. (PNA)
