Rainy Wednesday in Mindanao as LPA hovers south
MANILA, Philippines - More rain is in the forecast for Mindanao as the low pressure area continues to hover south of the island Wednesday, January 9.
The LPA, embedded along the intertropical convergence zone, was last spotted 160 km southeast of General Santos City, state weather bureau PAGASA said in its 24-hour forecast.
The combined weather systems will bring cloudy skies with moderate to heavy rain and thunderstorms to the region, which could trigger flashfloods and landslides.
The regions of Bicol and Eastern Visayas will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rain.
On the other hand, the northeast monsoon or the 'amihan' continues to affect Northern Luzon, with Cagayan Valley and the provinces of Aurora and Quezon having cloudy skies with light rain.
The rest of the country, including Metro Manila where the annual Feast of the Black Nazarene is taking place, will have partly cloudy skies with brief rain or thunderstorms.
