A low-pressure area (LPA) forming some 150 kilometers from Puerto Princesa City is causing scattered rain showers in Palawan and Western Visayas, the state weather bureau said Saturday.
Aldczar Aurelio, weather specialist of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), said the LPA is expected to dissolve immediately.
“Itong low-pressure area ay inaasahang malusaw ngayong araw. Dahil sa low-pressure dito banda sa Sulu Sea, maulap na kalangitan ang mararanasan na may kalat-kalat na pag-ulan at thunderstorm,” he said.
The scattered rains will not bring significant volume unlike the experienced southwest monsoon or Habagat which has not affected the country yet, Aurelio said.
He said most of the areas in Luzon will experience humid temperature and isolated thunderstorm to be experienced in the afternoon or evening.
