SURFACE TROUGH will continue to bring partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms across SOUTHERN PALAWAN, SOUTHERN PART OF SULU ARCHIPELAGO, AND MINDANAO.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will be clear to partly cloudy skies with possible isolated rain showers or thunderstorms in some areas especially in the afternoon or evening.
Meanwhile, TROPICAL DISTURBANCE (LPA) 94W is slowly organizing over the Caroline Islands and could become a Tropical Cyclone this weekend. As of 11:00 AM today, the center was located about 1,460 km east of Southern Mindanao (near 6.0°N lat 139.3°E lon), with maximum sustained winds of 35 km/hr near the center and currently quasi-stationary. The potential of becoming a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours is now MEDIUM (35-65% chance).
**Residents are advised to be on alert for possible flashfloods, landslides or lightning strikes during the occurrence of Severe Thunderstorms.
