Another Low Pressure Area is on its Way and Here’s Where It’s Headed

Be careful, everyone!

After Typhoon Rolly (Goni) ravaged parts of the Philippines and left, then came Severe Tropical Storm Siony (Atsani). Currently, Siony is on its way out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), but we can’t rest easy just yet. In fact, a new Low-Pressure Area (LPA) entered the radar just this afternoon, on November 6.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), as of 5 PM this Friday, Siony was 145 kilometers west-northwest of Itbayat, Batanes—specifically over the Bashi Channel. Currently, it’s moving at 20 kilometers per hour, and if it maintains that speed, it would exit PAR in the evening.

At the moment, Siony will continue to bring light to moderate rainfall over Batanes and the Babuyan Islands this Friday evening, and said rains may intensify on some occasions. On the other hand, the new LPA inside PAR entered at 2 PM on Friday. Reports as of 5 PM show that it was located 955 kilometers in the Eastern part of Visayas. PAGASA warns that the LPA could reach the area by Saturday afternoon.

However, parts of the country—specifically Eastern Visayas, Central Visayas, Mindanao, and Bicol—may experience scattered rain showers in the next 24 hours.

Should the LPA develop into a tropical depression in the next 36 hours, it will be given the local name Tonyo.
