A low-pressure area (LPA) is likely to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) late Thursday or early Friday, according to the state weather bureau.
Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather specialist Ariel Rojas said early Thursday that the LPA is recently located at 1, 275 kilometers east southeast of Davao City.
He said that though it will enter the PAR, it has a low chance of turning into a typhoon.
“Muli, mababa ang tiyansa sa kasalukuyan na ang LPA na ito ay maging isang bagyo. Ito ay posibleng makapasok ng PAR ngayong gabi o bukas ng madaling-araw,” he said.
The LPA will move towards northwest near the Mindanao land area. However, the weather scenario of the LPA will still change in the next forecast.
Meanwhile, the ridge or the extension of the high-pressure area (HPA) is still affecting the northern and central part of Luzon.
The easterlies of the humid air from the Pacific ocean is also affecting some parts of the country.
Some areas of Luzon including MIMAROPA will experience scattered rain showers brought by localized thunderstorms during afternoon and night.
The city of Puerto Princesa may experience a maximum temperature of 34 degrees Celsius on Thursday.
“Wala tayong nakataas na gale warning sa alin man bahagi ng baybaying dagat, banayad hanggang sa katamtaman ang kondisyon ng karagatan sa mga lugar na pinapayagan ang pumalaot ang ating mga kababayang mangingisda ay malaya kayo makakapaglayag,” he said.
