LPA to bring cloudy skies, rains in parts of Luzon, Visayas — Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — A low pressure area, formerly known as Tropical Depression Agaton, will bring cloudy skies and rains over parts of Luzon and Visayas on Wednesday, the state weather bureau said.
In its morning weather update, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Eastern Visayas, Masbate, and Sorsogon will have cloudy skies with scattered to widespread rains and thunderstorms due to the LPA.
Cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms are also expected in the rest of Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, the rest of Bicol Region, Marinduque, Romblon, and Quezon.

Pagasa warned of “possible flash floods or landslides during light to moderate to at times heavy rains.”
Meanwhile, localized thunderstorms will bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms in Metro Manila and the rest of the country, according to Pagasa.
Pagasa also said that an active tropical cyclone it is monitoring remains outside of the Philippine area of responsibility.
Typhoon Malakas (former Basyang) is located 1,535 kilometers east of Baler, Aurora and is moving northwestward away from the Philippines, according to Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio.
Meanwhile, Pagasa said the eastern seaboards of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao will have moderate to strong northeast to northwest winds and moderate to rough coastal water (1.2 to 3.7 meters).
In the extreme northern Luzon, moderate to strong northeast to east winds and moderate to rough coastal water (1.2 to 2.8 meters) are expected.
The rest of the country will have light to moderate west to northwest winds and slight to moderate coastal water (1.2 to 2.1 meters), according to Pagasa.
Agaton weakens into LPA but will still cause heavy rainfall
