Issued at: 6:45 PM PhT (10:45 GMT) Friday 28 June 2019
Next update: 7:00 PM PhT (11:00 GMT), Saturday 29 June 2019
Current Status and Outlook The entrance of another area of low pressure spotted over the Philippine Sea, known as Tropical Disturbance 95W is eyeing to become a Tropical Cyclone within the next 12 to 24 hours.  It will be named locally by PAGASA as “EGAY,” once they upgraded the system.

This LPA is still far to directly affect any part of the country. However, it will continue to enhance the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) and bring “on-&-off” rains and thunderstorms across Luzon and Visayas particularly the western sections through the weekend.

Where is LPA 95W? As of 5:00 PM PhT today, June 28…0900 GMT. The center was located over the eastern part of the Central Philippine Sea [near 13.2°N 133.9°E], about 1,051 km east of Virac, Catanduanes or 1,106 km east of Legazpi City, Albay
How strong is it? Maximum Sustained Winds (10-min avg): 35 kph near the center, with gustiness: 50 kph.
Past Movement (06 hrs) Quasi-Stationary over the Eastern Part of the Central Philippine Sea.
Forecast Highlights
  • The Day 2 to 3 Forecast (Jun 30-Jul 01) shows LPA 95W becoming a Tropical Depression (TD) over the Central and North Philippine Sea, but with high uncertainty. Forecast confidence at this time is LOW (<35% chance).
  • The presence of this potential Tropical Cyclone will continue to enhance the Southwest Monsoon (Habagat) and could bring occasional rains, some gusty winds and thunderstorms across Luzon and Visayas particularly the Western Sections including Metro Manila today through the weekend. Please be advised that severe thunderstorms may also occur across these areas which could cause flash floods and landslides. Precautionary measures must be implemented during the approach of these weather systems.
