MANILA—The low pressure area (LPA) spotted off east northeast of Borongan, Eastern Samar will continue to bring rains over Eastern Visayas and the Bicol Region in the next few days, state weather agency Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Monday.

Cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms which may trigger flash floods and landslides will be experienced over Bicol and Eastern Visayas.

In its 5 a.m. bulletin, PAGASA added that cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorm is expected over the rest of the Visayas, Quezon, Marinduque and Romblon.

Cloudy skies with light rains will be experienced in the Cordillera Autonomous Region, Cagayan Valley and Aurora.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains will prevail over the rest of Luzon, while partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorm will prevail over Mindanao.

PAGASA weather forecaster Glaiza Escullar said the northeast monsoon is affecting Luzon.

Moderate to strong winds will blow from the northeast over Luzon, and from northeast to northwest over the Visayas. Coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.

Elsewhere, PAGASA said light to moderate winds coming from northeast to northwest will prevail with slight to moderate seas.
