Rainy weekend due to Habagat, LPA

 
Two weather systems will dump rains this weekend.
 
These include a Low Pressure Area (LPA) inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) and the Southwest Monsoon affecting the western sections of Southern Luzon and Visayas.
 
At 3:00 AM today, the LPA was spotted at 40 kilometers north-northeast of Alabat, Quezon. PAGASA Weather Forecaster Samuel Duran said, the possibility that the LPA would develop into a tropical cyclone remains slim but it will still dampen Luzon as it approaches the landmass.
 
Today, areas in Luzon and Western Visayas will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the LPA. These rains may trigger flash floods and landslides. Meanwhile, the remaining parts of Visayas and Mindanao will experience a generally fair weather except for chances of localized thunderstorms.
