Based from the latest Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather forecast on Monday, July 23, 2012, a low pressure area (LPA) was estimated based on satellite and surface data at 1,170 km East of Mindanao.
In its 5 a.m. weather update, PAGASA mentioned that “Luzon and Western Visayas will have occasional rains becoming frequent over the western section of Luzon which may trigger flash floods and landslides. Central Visayas will be mostly cloudy with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. The rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.”
According to the weather bureau, there is no tropical cyclone existing within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
However, strong to gale force wind is expected to affect the Northern and Western seaboards of Luzon.
According to PAGASA, fishing boats and other small sea crafts are advised not to go out into the sea while larger vessels are alerted against big waves.
