MANILA, July 26 (PNA) — Except for isolated thunderstorms, fair weather will prevail in most parts of the country in the next two to three days, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Sunday.
In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Shaira Nonot said the low-pressure area (LPA) inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) is not affecting the country since it is far from extreme northern Luzon.
As of 4 a.m. Sunday, the LPA was spotted some 390 kilometers east of Basco, Batanes (20.1°N, 125.7°E).
Nonot said the LPA has slim chance to intensify into a tropical cyclone and is expected to dissipate within the next 36 hours.
She added that aside from the LPA, there is no weather disturbance seen near the PAR within five days or until the end of the month.
PAGASA explained that the convective activity brought about by intense heat triggers the formation of more cumulonimbus clouds or dark clouds associated with thunderstorms that bring rains.
For Sunday forecast, PAGASA said partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms will prevail over the whole country.
Light to moderate winds blowing from the south to southwest will prevail throughout the archipelago with slight to moderate seas. (PNA)
