‘Egay’ downgrades into a low pressure area

Tropical depression Egay fizzled into a low-pressure area before totally dissipating Tuesday morning, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reported.

Weather specialist Meno Mendoza said that after the LPA was dissolved, there is no weather system that has been monitored inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), but the southwest monsoon or Habagat is still affecting the larger area of Luzon.

“Tuluyan nang nalusaw ang ating low pressure area kaya sa kasalukuyan ay wala na tayong binabantayan na sama ng panahon sa loob ng ating Philippine Area of Responsibility, subalit ang ating Habagat o ang tinatawag na southwest monsoon patuloy pa rin makakaapekto sa malaking bahagi ng Luzon kaya patuloy pa rin makakaranas nang pag-ulan dulot ng Habagat,” Mendoza said.

The effect of the southwest monsoon will be experienced in the provinces of Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, Mindoro, and Palawan where rains will be observed.

There is not still gale warning advisory released according to the weather bureau, so fishermen with small boats are safe to sail in Philippine seas.

The seaboard in Luzon may have moderate to rough sea condition while the rest of the country is at a slight to moderate condition.

“Para sa ating mga mangingisda at gumagamit ng maliliit na sasakyang pandagat, wala tayong nakataas na gale warning sa kasalukuyan kaya ligtas pa rin sila makakapaglayag sa karagatan ng ating bansa. Ibayong ingat lang ating paalala pagkat dito Luzon, ang ating karagatan ay magiging katamtaman hanggang sa maalon, sa nalalabing bahagi ay magiging banayad hanggang sa katamtaman ang pag-alon,” he added.
