Goodbye Salome; hello, LPA

Tropical Storm Salome has exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), but a new Low Pressure Area is being monitored by PAGASA.

At 3:00 AM, Tropical Storm Salome was spotted at 379 kilometers west of Sinait, Ilocos Sur. It has maximum sustained winds of 75 kilometers per hour (kph), gustiness of 90 kph, moving northwest at 20 kph. According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Chris Perez, this weather disturbance no longer affects the country.

Meanwhile, a new weather disturbance is being monitored. According to Perez, the Low Pressure Area was last located at 875 kilometers east of Davao City, Davao del Sur. Although it has a slim chance of developing into a Tropical Cyclone, its trough will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in Caraga, the Davao Region, and SOCCSKSARGEN. Residents are alerted against possible lightning, moderate to occasionally heavy rains, strong winds, and flash floods.

Luzon, Visayas and the remaining parts of the country will experience generally fair weather except for chances of localized thunderstorms.
