A low-pressure area (LPA) which is currently monitored outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) has the possibility of becoming a tropical cyclone in the coming days, as per the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
In a weather bulletin, the LPA was last spotted at 2,275 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur and will likely bring cloudy skies and isolated rains over Mindanao and Eastern Visayas.
The state weather bureau also added that the LPA may enter the PAR by Sunday or Monday.
While it is possible to intensify into a tropical depression, Pagasa said that there are still no indications that it will have landfall. Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon or Habagat will continue to transpire on the areas of extreme Northern Luzon.
