Expect rain showers in parts of VisMin due to trough of LPA, says PAGASA

Rain showers may prevail in parts of Visayas and Mindanao on Saturday, Jan. 21, due to the trough or extension of the low pressure area spotted outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR), said the state weather bureau.


Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) Weather Specialist Grace Castañeda, in a public weather forecast, said the LPA may enter the Philippine boundary in the next few days. Although still outside PAR, its extension will continue to affect parts of Visayas as well as Mindanao – particularly Caraga and Davao Region.

“[Pinapayuhan na mag-ingat] ang ating mga kababayan sa [posibleng] pagbaha at pagguho ng lupa (We are advising the public to be vigilant against possible flooding and landslides),” said Castañeda.

Apart from this weather disturbance, PAGASA is also monitoring the shearline and the northeast monsoon.

The shear line – a weather system that forms due to the convergence of warm and cold winds – is still affecting the Bicol Region. With this, overcast skies and rainy weather may prevail in the area in the next 24-hour period.

The northeast monsoon, locally called amihan, may likewise bring cloudy skies with rains in Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, Aurora, Rizal, Laguna Quezon, Mindoro Provinces, Marinduque, and Romblon. This weather system may also trigger partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with light rains in Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, the rest of Central Luzon, and CALABARZON.
