LPA likely to develop into tropical depression

The country’s weather bureau on Friday said it continues to monitor a low-pressure area or LPA in the east of the Philippine Area of Responsibility, as it may develop into a tropical depression next week.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said the LPA was last tracked 2,235 kilometers east of southern Mindanao.

Weather forecaster Patrick del Mundo said Visayas and Mindanao will experience heavy rains with thunder and lightning, brought by the inter-tropical convergence zone or ITCZ in parts of Mindanao, particularly the Zamboanga Peninsula, BARMM, Soccskargen and Davao Region.

ITCZ will also trigger isolated rains or thunderstorms in Metro Manila and the rest of the country.

Del Mundo said the LPA has not moved significantly since Thursday.

No gale warnings were raised over any of the Philippine seaboards with light to moderate wind conditions will prevail throughout the country.
