MANILA, Philippines – Bad weather forced the cancellation of some domestic flights on Saturday, the Department of Transportation and Communications said.

In its Twitter account, the DOTC said the following Cebu Pacific and Air Philippines flights cancelled were:

5J-557 MNL-Cebu

5J-329 MNL-Legazpi

A low pressure area embedded along the intertropical convergence zone was observed 140 kilometers east of Davao City, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

The LPA, which may become a cyclone, will be called “Jolina” should it intensify.

“These weather systems are expected to bring moderate to heavy rains and thunderstorms over Bicol region, Visayas and Mindanao which may trigger flashfloods and landslides. Residents are advised to take all the necessary precautionary measures,” Pagasa said.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.
