SOUTHWESTERLIES (Southwesterly Surface Windflow/Weak Habagat) will bring partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms across PALAWAN, KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP, SULU ARCHIPELAGO, AND WESTERN VISAYAS.
TROUGH of TROPICAL DISTURBANCE (LPA) 94W affecting BICOL REGION, EASTERN VISAYAS, AND NORTHEASTERN 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 entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) last night and has accelerated west-northwestward during the past 24 hours and remains weak and disorganized. This system is no longer expected to become a Tropical Cyclone within the next 24 to 48 hours. As of 1:00 PM today, the center was located about 771 km east of Virac, Catanduanes (near 14.3°N lat 131.3°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 has been downgraded to LOW (<35% 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.
Important note: In the infrared (IR) satellite image shown above: BLUE areas indicate Clear Skies with a Few Clouds; GREEN = Partly to Mostly Cloudy Skies; YELLOW = Mostly Cloudy to Hazy Skies with Possible Slight-to-Moderate Rainfall; and RED = Thunderstorms with Moderate to Heavy to sometimes Extreme Rainfall.
