The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is monitoring two low-pressure areas (LPAs). According to the state weather bureau, one of these LPAs may become a tropical cyclone before Christmas.

The location of one of the LPAs was 795 kilometers east southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur inside the Philippine area of responsibility as of 3 AM. This will bring rains over the northeastern section of Mindanao. PAGASA said heavy rainfall warnings will be raised any time of the day in affected areas.

The other LPA is approximately 2,650 kilometers south of Mindanao. It may enter PAR by Monday.

PAGASA weather forecaster Loriedin dela Cruz said the second LPA may potentially become a tropical cyclone as it comes closer to the country’s landmass.

The second LPA is seen to bring heavy rains over the southern part of Visayas and Mindanao on Tuesday, Christmas eve.

Meanwhile, the easterlies will bring cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms over Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, and Quezon.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms brought about by the easterlies.
