PAGASA: LPA OFF MINDANAO NOT LIKELY TO DEVELOP INTO A TYPHOON

iT IS UNLIKELY that the low-pressure area (LPA) that formed inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), would develop into a typhoon, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

But the weather bureau said the LPA that enterred PAR this weekend can pose potential flash floods and landslides risk in parts of the Visayas and Mindanao. 

“It’s still unlikely for the LPA to develop into a tropical cyclone,” weather forecaster Chris Perez he said.

Perez said the LPA may move near Mindanao then eventually either dissipate or cross the island. 

According to PAGASA, as of 10 a.m. Monday, the LPA was some 185 kilometers east of Hinatuan municipality in Caraga in Surigao del Sur province.

NO TYPHOON PAOLO FOR PINOYS ON XMAS, NEW YEAR

By ROGER M. BALANZA

There will be no weather disturbance or typhoon to spoil the Pinoys’ celebration of Christmas or New Year this year.

The Low Pressure Area (LPA) off Mindanao moving towards the country that the weather bureau earlier predicted could develop into a tropical syclone named “Paolo” after it enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR)  has dissipated.

The LPA was reduced to a cloud cluster and it will have no impact on the country, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

On Christmas Eve or Friday, December 24, the Philippines will have generally fair weather, said the weather bureau.

The LPA has a 60 to 70 percent chance to develop into a tropical depression, added the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) in a statement.

In its Wednesday morning forecast, Aldczar Aurelio of PAGASA said the LPA was last located 1,350 kilometers east of Mindanao.

PAGASA said the LPA is now likely to be closest to the landmass of Mindanao on the evening of December 29 or on December 30.

The public is advised to take precautionary measures, and remain vigilant against unofficial information coming from unverified sources. Information can be obtained via PAGASA’s website, and on its official social media accounts.

The weather bureau earlier forecast one or two tropical cyclones to form or enter the country this month. (PNA
