The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is monitoring a low pressure are (LPA) near the boundary of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), that is expected to become a tropical cyclone.
Weather forecasters said the expected tropical cyclone is possibly be felt in a day or two.
The LPA was recently spotted 1,210 kilometers east of Southern Luzon, although it is still outside PAR.
Loriedin De la Cruz, a weather specialist, said once this LPA has developed into a tropical cyclone, it will be named “Ramon.”
Ramon will be the 18th tropical cyclone to enter the country this 2019.
De la Cruz, however, did not discourage the thought that the tropical cyclone may hit any part of the Philippine landmass.
The eastern part of the country is currently experiencing the trough or extension of the LPA. Residents of CALABARZON, Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, Caraga, Davao Region, and Aurora will experience scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies. In addition, isolated rain showers will be occuring due to localized thunderstorms.
