New LPA spotted east of Northern Luzon

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said that a new low pressure area (LPA) has been spotted east of Northern Luzon.

The state weather bureau said that although the new LPA remains too far from the country to have a direct impact, there’s possibility that it could acquire more strength as it hovers over the ocean. Should it enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) over the weekend and intensify into a cyclone, it will be called locally as “Nando.”

Meanwhile, Tropical storm “Maring” (international name: Trami) is already out of PAR, but the yellow rainfall alert remains in effect Thursday morning in Metro Manila as it continues to indirectly affect the city and other Northern Luzon provinces.
