LPAs forming and dissolving quickly expected in coming days

MANILA A low-pressure area (LPA) spotted in the vicinity of San Nicolas, Batangas was expected to dissolve late afternoon to early evening on Thursday, the state weather bureau reported.

Ariel Rojas, weather specialist of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), said in the 4 p.m. advisory that the LPA will "not turn into a typhoon and will dissolve in the next few hours."

Rojas noted that the trend of LPAs forming and dissolving will likely continue in the coming days.

The LPA was last spotted in the vicinity of San Nicolas, Batangas as of 3 p.m. Thursday.

Based on its weather bulletin, the bureau said Batangas, Cavite, Palawan, Mindoro, and Western Visayas will also experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms caused by the LPA and the southwest monsoon in the next 24 hours.

Other areas, including Metro Manila, were forecast to have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers brought about by local thunderstorms.

The western section of Luzon and Visayas will experience moderate seaboards, while other seaboards will be slight to moderate.

PAGASA sees a temperature range of 16-33 degrees Celsius until Monday.

On Thursday, the bureau recorded a peak temperature of 30 degrees Celsius and a minimum of 24.9 degrees Celsius. (PNA)
