The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) monitored on Friday, Aug. 19, a low pressure area (LPA) east of central Luzon, which may bring scattered rains and thunderstorms over Bicol region and Visayas in the next 24 hours.

PAGASA last spotted the LPA at 1,325 kilometers east of central Luzon.

In its weekly weather outlook, PAGASA said Bicol region and Visayas will have cloudy skies, scattered rain showers, and thunderstorms, while the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with chances of rain showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, Aug. 20.

By Sunday, Aug. 21, Metro Manila, Southern Luzon, and Visayas will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, PAGASA said.

Rains may be more frequent over the western part of Visayas, it added.

By Monday, Aug. 22, PAGASA said that Metro Manila, Central Luzon, and Southern Luzon will be cloudy with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.

However, rains will become more frequent over Bicol Region, it said.

PAGASA said that from Tuesday until Wednesday, Aug. 23 to 24, scattered rain showers and thunderstorms may prevail over Luzon, with rains becoming more frequent over the western sections due to the southwest monsoon or “habagat.”

“By Thursday (Aug. 25), Northern and Central Luzon, including Metro Manila, will have cloudy skies with rain showers and thunderstorms becoming frequent rains over the western section, while the rest of the country will have warm and humid weather condition apart from isolated rain showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening,” it added.

By Friday, Aug. 26, PAGASA said the western section of Northern and Central Luzon will be cloudy with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms, while the rest of the country will be warm and humid with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms in the afternoon.

“Throughout the outlook period, tropical cyclone development is possible. Updates through weather advisories will be issued if there will be significant changes in the weather scenario,” it said.
