The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the low pressure area earlier spotted still remains at its location east of Visayas and embedded along the Intertropical Convergence Zone.
PAGASA, in its weather synopsis issued Thursday morning, said the LPA was estimated based on satellite and surface data at 460 kilometers east of Visayas (11.2°N, 130.5°E) embedded along the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) affecting Visayas and Mindanao.
With the presence of the ITCZ, PAGASA forecast that Eastern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms becoming cloudy with widespread rains over Eastern Luzon which may trigger flashfloods and landslides. The rest of Luzon will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
For its wind and sea alerts, the weather agency said that light to moderate winds blowing from the east to southeast will prevail over Northern and Central Luzon and coming from the southwest to northwest over the rest of the country. The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate.
As of today, Thursday, there is no tropical cyclone spotted within the Philippine area of responsibility.
