MANILA, Philippines – A low pressure area being monitored by the state weather bureau moved towards Batanes while a weak southwest monsoon continued to affect the western section of the country Friday morning.

The LPA was last spotted in the vicinity of Batanes, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

Should it intensify into a cyclone, it will be called “Maring.”

“The regions of Ilocos, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley and Zamboanga Peninsula will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms,” Pagasa said.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country, meanwhile, will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the southwest will prevail over Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the south to southwest with slight to moderate seas.
