TROUGH of TROPICAL DISTURBANCE (LPA) 94W affecting the EASTERN VISAYAS, NORTHERN AND EASTERN MINDANAO, where partly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will be expected.
Meanwhile, TROPICAL DISTURBANCE (LPA) 94W has moved northwestward during the past 24 hours and is nearing the eastern border of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). This system could still become a Tropical Cyclone this weekend or early next week. As of 11:00 AM today, the center was located about 1,211 km east of Borongan City, Eastern Samar (near 11.3°N lat 136.5°E lon), with maximum sustained winds of 35 km/hr near the center. The potential of becoming a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains MEDIUM (35-65% chance).
Elsewhere, THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will continue to be clear to partly or mostly cloudy skies with possible isolated rain showers or 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.
