LPA east of GenSan brings rains to parts of Mindanao

MALAYBALAY CITY (MindaNews/11 March) — Caraga and Davao regions will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms due to a low pressure area over the Pacific Ocean, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said on Tuesday.

As of 4:00 a.m. today, the LPA was estimated to be 530 kilometers east of General Santos City.

“Moderate to strong winds blowing from the Northeast will prevail over Eastern Mindanao with moderate to rough seas, and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough,” Pagasa said.

“By Wednesday, the estimated center of the LPA is expected to traverse over Southern Mindanao, hence its cloud bands will affect most areas of Mindanao and Visayas which will bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms,” according to the state weather bureau’s weekly weather forecast. (MindaNews)
