MANILA – The low-pressure area (LPA) outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) is expected to enter in the next 24 to 48 hours, a forecaster said Friday.

Aldczar Aurelio of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the LPA, last tracked 1,715 km. east of Central Luzon, is also likely to develop into a tropical cyclone.

On Friday, the LPA’s trough or extension is seen to bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Eastern and Central Visayas.

The southwest monsoon will also cause scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Palawan, Zamboanga Peninsula, and the rest of the Visayas.

Moderate to heavy rains in those areas could result in flash floods or landslides, according to PAGASA.

Meanwhile, the rest of the country will continue to experience isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.

Light to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas continue to prevail across the archipelago, PAGASA said. (PNA)
