A possible trough of low pressure area (LPA) will affect Davao region while the northeast monsoon or hanging amihan will affect extreme northern Luzon, the state weather bureau said on Sunday.

The possible trough of LPA is expected to bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Davao region, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), and residents were advised to be on alert for possible flashfloods and landslides caused by light to heavy rain.
