The low-pressure area (LPA) east of northeastern Mindanao still has little chance of developing into a storm on Thursday, November 16, 2023, according to the latest Pagasa report.

In a public weather forecast issued at 4 a.m. on Thursday, Pagasa said the LPA remains outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) at 1,220 kilometers east of northeastern Mindanao.

“Itong low-pressure area na ito, sa ngayon, ay mas bumaba ang tsansa na magiging bagyo sa mga susunod na mga oras. Inaasahan natin na mananatiling mababa yung tsansa nito na magiging bagyo within the next 48 hours,” weather specialist Patrick Del Mundo said in his report.

Del Mundo said the LPA is expected to  enter the PAR in the next 24 hours.

Wet weather in Cebu expected until weekend

Wet weather is expected in Cebu starting Thursday, November 16, until the weekend due to the presence of a shear line.

Residents are advised to bring out their umbrellas.

“Shear line is a type of weather system where cold and warm winds converge. As a result, we will be expecting light to moderate with occasional heavy rains,” Jhomer Eclarino, weather specialist at Pagasa-Mactan, said in Cebuano.
