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.

There will be no potential tropical cyclone in the next two to three days, on Thursday, December 23.

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

The low pressure area (LPA) over the Pacific is now expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) either on December 26 or 27, the weather bureau said in an update on Wednesday.

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
