A strong Active Low Pressure Area (ALPA) was spotted off Cagayan, which is still reeling from the effects of Bagyong "HELEN" and Habagat.
In its latest bulletin, PAGASA said that at 2:00 am today (August 19), the Active Low Pressure Area (ALPA) was estimated based on satellite and surface data at 330 km East of Aparri, Cagayan (18.4°N 125.2°E).
There's a big possibility that this ALPA will become a tropical cyclone within the next 12 to 24 hours and will be called "IGME" once it enters Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
According to T2K StormWatch, the LPA's maximum winds - Gusts is 35-50 kph and is moving SSW slowly towards Batanes-Taiwan.
The weather bureau said that Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms. The rest of Luzon will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms becoming cloudy with widespread rains over Northern Luzon which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.
