MANILA, Philippines — Tropical depression “Zoraida” has weakened into a Low Pressure Area (LPA), the state weather bureau said Tuesday afternoon.

In its 3:30 p.m. advisory, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the LPA was last spotted in the vicinity of San Francisco, Agusan Del Sur or at 40 kilometers west-northwest of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

All storm signal warnings have been lifted, Pagasa said.

The LPA is expected to be 110 km south-southwest of Cuyo, Palawan by Wednesday and will be out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility by Thursday.

Pagasa warned moderate to heavy rains will still persist over Central and Eastern Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula and Northern Mindanao. Light to  moderate  rains is expected over the rest of Visayas and Mindanao.
