MANILA, PHILIPPINES – The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration said a low pressure area (LPA) off Davao City will bring rain to a large portion of the country on Tuesday (Pagasa).

The LPA was last spotted 100 kilometers east-southeast of Davao City, Davao Del Sur, according to Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio in a weather forecast.

“Dahil sa epekto ng low pressure area, malaking bahagi ng ating bansa ang makakaranas ng maulap na kalangitan na may mga pag-ulan,” Aurelio said.

The LPA is expected to bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms to Visayas, Mindanao, and the provinces of Sorsogon, Albay, Masbate, Romblon, and Palawan, according to Pagasa.

Although the LPA is not expected to develop into a tropical depression, Aurelio warned of the possibility of flash floods or landslides in areas affected by the weather disturbance.

Meanwhile, he stated that the northeast monsoon, also known as amihan in the Philippines, is currently affecting the weather in Northern Luzon.

“Ang northeast monsoon o amihan ay naaapektuhan ang Northern Luzon. Inaasahan po natin na ito ay lalakas at maaapektuhan ngayong araw ang malaking bahagi ng Luzon,” he said.

The northeast monsoon will bring cloudy skies with light rains to Cagayan Valley, and partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains to Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon, according to Pagasa.
