“Unwanted guest” may come during PH Papal visit

“Unwanted guest” may come during PH Papal visit.


MANILA, January 11 — Guess “who” (what) might come during Pope Francis Papal Visit to the Philippines next week?

A forming weather disturbance that may strengthen to a low pressure area may enter the Philippine area of responsibility during the Pope’s visit, according to the state weather bureau PAGASA.

“The forming weather disturbance may enter PAR on (January) 14, 15 or 16,” PAGASA said.

The movement of the potential LPA is quite slow, adding it does not have much movement.

Based on Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) charts, the potential stagnant LPA was found near Australia.

PAGASA weather forecasts the tail-end of the cold front might return, which might bring in more rains to the country.

The temperature will continue to drop due to the expected winter season peak of the Northern Hemisphere and the Northeast Monsoon or “Hangin Amihan”. It is the cold winds, which blows into the country from October to March, originating from Siberia, Russia.(PNA)
