After #SalomePH, a new weather disturbance is being monitored inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) and was last spotted at 320 km east of General Santos City, South Cotabato. According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Meno Mendoza, the possibility for the LPA to develop into a Tropical Cyclone remains slim. However, its trough or extended cloudiness is expected to bring rains in several parts of Visayas and Mindanao.
A rainy Sunday will be experienced in Mindanao, Central Visayas and the provinces of Negros Occidental and Southern Leyte, where scattered rain showers and thunderstorms prevail. Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.
Meanwhile, the Northeast Monsoon or Hanging Amihan has weakened and is only affecting the extreme Northern Luzon. No gale warning was hoisted today but sea travelers including fisherfolk and other small seacraft are advised to take extra caution in the seaboards of Northern Luzon, Eastern Visayas and the eastern section of Central and Southern Luzon.
