The Low Pressure Area (LPA) called 97W is growing and intensifying.
The pressure inside the system went down to 1006 hPa. The LPA is almost stationary. There seems to be a trend that its will turn northwards before the core arrives in the Philippines.
Compare with this morning’s animation.
The Low Pressure Area (LPA) is at this moment estimated at 410 km East of Hinatuan, Surigao Del Sur (9.5°N, 130.5°E). It is embedded along the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) affecting Bicol Region, Visayas and Mindanao.
The big beast will bring clouds and probably rains to Bicol, Visayas and Mindanao. Beware of flashfloods and landslides.
We keep an eye on this LPA!
