MANILA, Philippines — Rainshowers and overcast skies may be expected to continue in many parts of the country Friday because of a low-pressure area (LPA) east-southeast of Romblon and the prevailing intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), the state weather service said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that as of 4 a.m. September 17, the LPA was located 90 kilometers east-southeast of Romblon, Romblon, and still has a low chance of developing into a storm.
