Northern Mindanao and CARAGA regions may experience rains in the afternoon. Davao region and SOCSARGEN will have localized thunderstorms in late afternoon,

Possible typhoon next week?

Estareja said Pagasa is monitoring a “cloud cluster” forming east of Visayas.

Bicol, Eastern and Central Visayas might experience rains tomorrow if the cloud cluster continues to move towards the Philippine mainland.

Pagasa is also monitoring a low pressure area in the Pacific Ocean, around 2,200 kilometers away south of Mindanao.

The LPA may continue to move towards the Philippines and cause rains in Mindanao area from Wednesday until Thursday.

“Hindi natin inaalis na posible maging bagyo itong low pressure area habang lumalapit sa ating kalupaan at patuloy na tumatawid sa mataas na moisture ng ating karagatan. Kaya’t patuloy na ating minomonitor ang dalawang weather disturbances na ito,” Estareja said.
