The low pressure area that was headed to Mindanao from the Pacific Ocean dissipated before it could develop into a storm, PAGASA said Thursday, sparing areas battered by Typhoon Odette a break from inclement weather.
The threat of rains from weather system during the Christmas weekend is now gone, said PAGASA Forecaster Ana Clauren.
"Nawala na po 'yung circulation o humina na po ang LPA na ating binabantayan at sa kasalukuyan, isa na lang po siyang ganap na cloud cluster," she said during the 4 p.m. briefing.
Clear skies will prevail in the morning of Christmas eve, with some rain still possible as Filipinos in Luzon feast on their Noche Buena on Friday night, Clauren said.
Those in Visayas and Mindanao should expect thunderstorms hours before Dec. 25, Christmas Day, she said.
