Two Low Pressure Areas (LPA) formed as the new month set in.
The first one, located east of Palawan has already exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), but the other one remains inside PAR. At 3:00 a.m., it was located 580 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur. According to PAGASA Weather Forecaster Ezra Bulquerin, the LPA may develop into a tropical depression within 36 to 72 hours (between Sunday and Monday) and will be named Domeng. It is expected to move northward and dampen the eastern side of the country.
Today, the LPA inside PAR will bring cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms to Eastern Visayas, Caraga and Davao Region. The extension of the LPA outside PAR and the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) will cause cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms to Mindoro provinces, Palawan, rest of Visayas and of Mindanao. The remaining parts of Luzon including Metro Manila will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers.
No gale warning was raised but a moderate to occasionally rough condition is expected in the coastal waters of Western Visayas and Palawan Mindanao.
