MANILA, Philippines – Parts of Caraga and Davao will experience rains as a low pressure area (LPA) hovered the Mindanao area, the state weather bureau said Monday.

The LPA monitored, which may become the second tropical cyclone of the year, was last spotted 300 kilometers southeast of Mindanao, embedded along the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) also affecting Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

Should it intensifies, Pagasa said, it will be called “Bising.”


Leyte provinces and Mindanao will have cloudy skies with moderate to heavy rainshowers and thunderstorms which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

Meanwhile, Bicol region and the rest of Visayas will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers or thunderstorms. Cagayan Valley will experience cloudy skies with light rains.

Metro Manila and the rest of the Luzon will be partly cloudy with brief rainshowers or thunderstorms, Pagasa said.

A northeast monsoon or “hanging amihan” was affecting Northern Luzon.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast to north will prevail throughout the archipelago and the coastal waters will be moderate to rough, Pagasa said.

The Philippines is battered with up to 20 storms a year.
