MANILA — The weather bureau is monitoring a low pressure area (LPA) estimated 450 kilometers east of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services’ (PAGASA) 24-hour weather forecast, the LPA is expected to bring scattered to widespread rainshowers and thunderstorms over the Bicol Region, Eastern Visayas, Quezon Province, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas and Rizal.

Meanwhile, the tail end of a cold front is affecting the eastern section of southern Luzon while the amihan or northeast monsoon prevails in northern and central Luzon.

Rains from the LPA and cold front may trigger floods in Mindanao, MIMAROPA and the rest of the Visayas.

The northeast monsoon will bring light rains over Metro Manila, Cagayan Valley, Cordillera, Ilocos and Central Luzon regions. (PNA)
