TROPICAL DISTURBANCE (LPA) 91W together with its TROUGH, and enhanced EASTERLIES – will bring mostly cloudy to cloudy (overcast) skies with isolated, scattered to widespread rain showers and thunderstorms across NORTHERN MINDANAO and SOUTHERN PALAWAN, EASTERN and CENTRAL VISAYAS. As of 12:00 PM today, the center of LPA 91W was located about 262 km South of Puerto Princesa City (7.6°N 118.9°E) and is expected to move Westward towards the Southern part of the West Philippine Sea. This LPA has a low chance (<35%) of developing into a Tropical Cyclone within the next 24 hours.
Meanwhile, the surge of the NORTHEAST MONSOON (AMIHAN) will bring partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies with occasional rain showers & possible thunderstorms across BATANES and BABUYAN ISLAND GROUP. The winds will be fresh to strong breeze (35 to 55 kph) with moderate to rough seas (2 to 4 meters), making it risky for small and medium sea vessels.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will continue to have clear to mostly cloudy skies with isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms developing later.
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.
