    4th storm threatens Philippines

     
    The low pressure area still outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) has intensified into tropical depression, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Saturday.
    PAGASA weather forecaster Fernando Cada said the tropical depression was spotted some 1,500 km east of southern Mindanao and is expected to enter the country by Sunday but its effects will not be immediately felt.
    He added that tropical depression is forecast to move west northwest at 23 kph.
    He said it will be named "Domeng," the fourth cyclone to affect the country this year.
    Pura said the approaching tropical depression will start to bring rains over the eastern part of Visayas and Mindanao either Monday or Tuesday.
    He said the tropical depression is likely to make a landfall somewhere between the Caraga region and Eastern Visayas.
    The Eastern Visayas is still recovering from Typhoon Yolanda, which struck last November.
    Pura emphasized that residents of the region should be made aware of the coming tropical depression's effects.
    For Saturday forecast, Pura said that parts of extreme Northern Luzon will be spared from hot weather as the tail-end of a cold front affecting the area will bring cloudy skies with scattered light rains and isolated thunderstorms over Cagayan Valley.
    With the cold front, he said Tuguegarao City, which for the past few days recorded high temperatures, will experience cloudy skies with light rains as the temperature recorded Friday was at 33 degrees Celsius way below the 37 degrees Celsius recorded earlier.
    Pura said that the rest of the country, including Metro Manila, will still have warm weather except for isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
