A potential storm east of the Visayas is seen to enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) this weekend, the state weather bureau said Friday.

The low-pressure area was spotted 2,006 kilometers east of the Visayas and is likely to develop into a tropical cyclone, weather forecaster Meno Mendoza of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.


It is forecast to enter the PAR on Saturday or Sunday. If it forms into a tropical depression, it will be locally named “Paeng.”

Mendoza said the potential cyclone is expected to cross extreme Northern Luzon.


Meanwhile, the intertropical convergence zone continues to affect Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Mimaropa, Western and Central Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.

Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will have localized thunderstorms.
