MANILA, Philippines — The low pressure area west of Central Luzon dissipated early Monday morning, even as another LPA east of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan may develop into a tropical depression, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

In its 4 a.m. weather forecast, Pagasa said the existing LPA was last spotted 135 kilometers east of Tuguegarao City.

“Itong LPA ay may posibilidad na maging tropical depression sa susunod na 36 hours. Ang movement nito ay maaaring dumaan sa Batanes area,” Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio said.

(This LPA may intensify into a tropical depression in the next 36 hours and may cross the the vicinity of Batanes.)

“‘Yung pangalawang bahagi na nasa west or kanlurang bahagi ng Central Luzon ay tuluyang nalusaw kaninang alas dos ng madaling araw,” he added.

(The other LPA west of Central Luzon dissipated at 2 a.m. today.)

Pagasa added that the Ilocos region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Aurora and Quezon will have cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms due to the LPA on Monday.

Metro Manila, the rest of Central Luzon, Mimaropathe , Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao and Caraga region will likewise have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the southwest monsoon or “habagat”.
