MANILA -- Rainy weather in most parts of the country are expected as two low-pressure areas (LPA) were spotted early morning of Saturday.
As of 3 a.m., the LPA, embedded along the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), was estimated at 135 km. east of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reported.
Meanwhile, another LPA within the ITCZ was also spotted at 185 km. west of Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte while the northeast monsoon is affecting Northern Luzon, the weather bureau added.
Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, the Bicol region, the Visayas, Caraga, Northern Mindanao, and Zamboanga Peninsula will have cloudy skies and scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the presence of the LPAs and ITCZ.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers.
PAGASA warned of possible isolated flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.
