MANILA, Philippines — A low pressure area was spotted east of Northern Luzon Thursday, the state weather bureau said.

The LPA was last observed 1,200 kilometers east of Northern Luzon, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon is affecting the western sections of Northern and Central Luzon.

Cagayan Valley and the regions of Ilocos and Cordillera will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms, Pagasa said.
