MANILA, Philippines– A low pressure area was tracked near Surigao City which will cause possible flashfloods and landslides, the state weather bureau said midday Sunday.

“This weather system will bring cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms over Eastern Visayas particularly Eastern and Northern Samar,” the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

Seaboards of Eastern and Central Visayas will be moderate to occasionally rough.

Gladys Saludes, weather forecaster of Pagasa, told INQUIRER.net that the LPA will likely dissipate.

But another LPA located 1,220 kilometers east of Guiuan in Eastern Samar, is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility by Sunday night or early Monday.

Saludes said the LPA is likely to intensify into a tropical depression. This will be named Ester once it becomes a cyclone.

Based on forecast models, Saludes said the weather disturbance will affect Bicol region.
