The low-pressure area (LPA) spotted 310 kilometers east of Virac, Catanduanes will bring scattered to widespread rains and thunderstorms over Bicol Region and Eastern Visayas, the weather bureau said Tuesday.
Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather specialist, Samuel Duran, said the LPA currently has a low chance of becoming a tropical storm.
“The LPA is near the landmass. We advise those in the Bicol Region to regularly check our thunderstorm and rainfall advisories,” he said.
The LPA is also expected to cause scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Region 4-B (Mimaropa), Zamboanga Peninsula, and the rest of the Visayas.
Isolated rain showers, mostly in the afternoon or evening, will be experienced over the rest of the country due to localized thunderstorms.
Light to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas will prevail over the whole archipelago, PAGASA said.
