A newly-developing TROPICAL DISTURBANCE (LPA) 99W and its associated TROUGH will bring mostly cloudy to cloudy skies with scattered to widespread light to moderate to at times heavy rain showers and thunderstorms across PALAWAN, SULU ARCHIPELAGO, KALAYAAN ISLAND GROUP, and MINDANAO. As of 10:00 AM today, LPA 99W was spotted some 116 km SE of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan (9.3N 119.6E). The potential of 99W of becoming a significant Tropical Cyclone within the next 24 hours is LOW (<35% chance).
Meanwhile, the REST OF THE PHILIPPINES will have partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in some areas especially in the afternoon or evening.
