The low pressure area (LPA) tracked by the weather bureau has intensified into a tropical depression late Monday.

Aldczar Aurelio of Pagasa said by phone that there are chances that the cyclone will intensify further as it remained at sea.


The tropical depression moved west northwest at 25 kph and packed maximum sustained winds of 45 kph.

Aurelio couldn’t say yet if the tropical depression would make landfall, but said that cyclones at this time of the year usually hit land.

A tail-end of a cold front is affecting extreme Northern Luzon.

Cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms will be experienced over the provinces of Ilocos Norte, Apayao, Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, Quezon and the islands of Batanes, Calayan and Babuyan.

Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms will prevail over Metro Manila and the rest of the country. IDL
