Expect moderate to heavy rainfall over the eastern sections of Luzon and Visayas this Tuesday, as a low pressure area (LPA) is expected to develop into a tropical cyclone.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) estimated the location of the LPA at 715 kilometers (km) east of Surigao City in Surigao del Norte before Monday noon.

It may still intensify into a tropical depression within 24 hours, and will be given a local name of “Domeng,” PAGASA weather specialist Sheilla Reyes said.

Domeng will be the first cyclone to form inside the country’s area of responsibility this June. PAGASA earlier noted that one to two tropical cyclones may affect the country this month, with a possibility of making landfall over Northern or Central Luzon.

The brewing cyclone is continuously moving north but has a slim chance of making landfall over any part of the country, Reyes pointed out.

While it is unlikely that it will make landfall, she said the weather disturbance’s outer circulation may bring moderate to heavy rains that could trigger flash floods or landslides over low-lying or mountainous communities in the eastern part of Luzon and Visayas.

It could also set off the moisture-laden southwesterly surface wind flow over the western section of the country, which could mean that the wet or rainy season is imminent.

Meanwhile, PAGASA said Bicol Region, Palawan, and the rest of Visayas and Mindanao will have scattered light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms.

Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.

The low pressure area (LPA) east of the country will likely intensify into a tropical cyclone with local name “Domeng” within 24 to 48 hours.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) estimated the location of the LPA at 495 kilometers (km) east of Surigao City before Sunday noon.

PAGASA weather specialist Meno Mendoza said the weather disturbance will bring occasional moderate to heavy rain showers and thunderstorms over the regions of Caraga, Davao and Eastern Visayas as it is expected to develop into a tropical depression.

It will be named “Domeng” once it intensifies into a cyclone.

PAGASA warned residents in Caraga, Davao, and Eastern Visayas to be on alert against possible flash floods and landslides.

It earlier said the brewing cyclone could move towards extreme Northern Luzon or Taiwan by Friday. It could bring rains and occasional gusty winds over Northern Luzon towards the end of the week.

Meanwhile, the intertropical convergence zone, which serves as a breeding ground for brewing cyclones, will bring scattered light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms over Palawan and the rest of Visayas and Mindanao this Monday.

Mendoza said the LPA west of the Philippines or outside the country’s area of responsibility has already intensified into tropical cyclone. It was estimated at 985 km west of San Jose, Occidental Mindoro.

However, Mendoza said it will no longer affect any part of the Philippines as it continues to move away from the country.

Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms
