Should the LPAs intensify, the next two names of tropical cyclones would be Bising and Crising.

Bohol, Leyte provinces and Mindanao will experience cloudy skies with moderate to heavy rainshowers and thunderstorms which may trigger flashfloods and landslides, Pagasa said.

The rest of Visayas will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers or thunderstorms.

Ilocos Norte and Cagayan Valley will be cloudy with light rains as a tail-end of a cold front is affecting Northern Luzon.

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

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