MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is monitoring a low pressure area (LPA) spotted east of Eastern Samar. 

As of 3:00 AM on Tuesday (June 9), the weather disturbance was estimated at 465 kilometers East of Guiuan, Eastern Samar and is embedded along the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ).

PAGASA said ITCZ will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with scattered rain showers or thunderstorms across Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to the effects of the easterlies.

According to weather specialist Robb Gile on Tuesday’s briefing, the LPA may intensify into a tropical depression but even if not, the combined effects of the LPA and ITCZ may still affect some parts of the country as the week progresses.
