The combined effects of a low pressure area (LPA) and southwest monsoon or “habagat” may continue to bring scattered rains over Northern Luzon, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
 
PAGASA estimated the location of the LPA at 360 kilometers east of Basco, Batanes around 3 a.m. Sunday.
 
Weather specialist Benison Estareja said the LPA has a slim chance of developing into a tropical depression.
 
Aside from the LPA, the southwest monsoon or “habagat” continues to affect the western parts of Luzon and Visayas.
 
The LPA and the “habagat” may bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Abra, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Apayao, Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, and Quirino.
 
Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms and the “habagat.”
 
PAGASA advised the public to remain vigilant in the event of severe thunderstorm activity as it may trigger flash floods or landslides, especially in high-risk areas.
 
As of Sunday’s forecast, Estareja said the weather bureau does not expect a new tropical cyclone entering the country’s area of responsibility until the end of September.
