As of 11:00 AM today, LPA 90W was relocated some 659 km East of Surigao City, Surigao Del Norte (10.3N 131.5E), and is forecast to move slowly NNE to Northward across the South Philippine Sea. The potential of 90W of becoming a significant Tropical Cyclone within the next 24 hours remains at MEDIUM (35-65% chance).
Meanwhile, a MONSOON TROUGH which is interconnected between TD 05W and LPA 90W – will bring mostly cloudy to cloudy conditions with scattered light to moderate to at times heavy rain showers and thunderstorms across VISAYAS, NORTHERN AND EASTERN MINDANAO, MIMAROPA, SULU ARCHIPELAGO, BICOL REGION, AND SOUTHERN TAGALOG PROVINCES.
SOUTHWESTERLIES (aka. Southwesterly Surface Windflow) will bring partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered to occasional rain showers and thunderstorms across THE KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP (KIG).
The REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will continue to have partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in some areas especially in the afternoon or evening.
**Residents are advised to be on alert for POSSIBLE FLASHFLOODS, LANDSLIDES OR LIGHTNING STRIKES during the occurrence of Severe Thunderstorms.
