Warm EASTERLIES (EASTERLY TRADE WIND) continue to sweep across EASTERN section of LUZON, including METROPOLITAN MANILA, BICOL REGION, MIMAROPA & VISAYAS, NORTHERN & EASTERN MINDANAO. It will bring some cloud cover, and increase the chances of occasional rain showers or thunderstorm, but hot, humid and dry overall.
Meanwhile, TROPICAL DISTURBANCE 95W (LPA) has formed just south of Yap State, Micronesia. As of 8PM, it was seen at (5.0°N lat 137.3°E long), or about 1,243 km east of Mati City, Davao de Oro. The chance for this system to develop into a full-fledged Tropical Cyclone remain LOW (<35%), for now. We’ll monitor this system within the next 3-5 days if it does intensify and threaten the islands east of the country.
THE REST OF THE COUNTRY will have clear to partly cloudy skies and some chances of isolated to scattered 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.
