Weather Update: August 8, 2012 Low Pressure Area

Weather Advisory No. 6
For: Southwest monsoon
Issued at: 11:00 AM, 08 August 2012

The Southwest Monsoon (HABAGAT) has weakened slightly as Tropical Cyclone "HAIKUI" outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility has moved farther away and made landfall in the vicinity of Shanghai, China early this morning. Consequently, weather condition is expected to slightly improve further before the weekend because of the weakening of the southwesterly winds. However, for the next 12 hours, light to moderate rains (2.5-5mm/hr) in some portions of Batangas are expected. Intermittent moderate to heavy (5-10mm/hr) but less frequent rains compared with the past 24-hours will be experienced in the following Provinces: Portions of Pangasinan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Tarlac, Bulacan, Bataan, Rizal, Cavite and NCR.

Threats of flashfloods and floods in low lying areas and landslides in mountainous areas as well as Lahar flows over Pinatubo will gradually decrease.

Residents living in those areas are still warned against the danger of these hazards that may occur.

Disaster managers are still alerted to continually take precautionary measures.

The next update will be incorporated in the Public Weather Forecast at 5:00 pm today while the next advisory will be issued at 11:00 am tomorrow.
