New LPA spotted
Typhoon Gener has already left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) today, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
It also said a low pressure area (LPA) may enter PAR Saturday night and become a storm—but it will not hit land and may only remain in PAR on Saturday for six hours.
According to weather forecasters, the new LPA—if it intensifies into a storm—will be named ‘Helen.’
