Mindanao will continue to have rains due to a low pressure area (LPA) in the vicinity of Surigao del Sur, while the northeast monsoon continued to affect Northern Luzon, the state weather bureau said on Sunday afternoon.

The LPA was last plotted at 400 kilometers east-southeast of Hinatuan in Surigao del Sur, according to the 5 p.m. bulletin issued by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon would have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains, while partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms would prevail over the rest of the country.
