Another Low Pressure Area threatens Mindanao

MANILA, Philippines – Days after a weather disturbance brought floods in Mindanao, another Low Pressure Area (LPA) is now threathening southern Philippines.

At 10 a.m. today, the Philippine Atmospheris Geophysical and Astronomical Administration (PAGASA) spotted the LPA at 410 kilometers east-southeast of General Santos City.

The LPA's wind convergence will affect the Eastern Visayas region, the state weather bureau added.

"These weather systems will bring mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Visayas and Mindanao," PAGASA said.

The weather will become cloudy with widespread rains over Eastern and Central Visayas and Eastern and Southern Mindanao, which may trigger flashfloods and landslides, it added.

If fully developed into a typhoon, it will be the first to enter the country in 2012, six months early of the country's typhoon season in June.
