MANILA—State weather bureau PAGASA said Saturday it is monitoring 2 low-pressure areas (LPAs) that will bring rains in parts of Luzon and Mindanao.

One brewing storm was located 240 kilometers east of Aparri, Cagayan, weather specialist Gener Quitlong said.

The weather disturbance may strengthen into a tropical cyclone after it leaves the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR).

Quitlong said the other LPA was spotted 955 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur. It is expected to enter PAR Saturday morning, but may not hit land.

Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Bicol Region and Quezon will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the LPA off Cagayan.

The southwest monsoon or habagat, which continues to prevail over the western section of Luzon, will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon.

Caraga, Davao Region and Soccsksargen will also have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the trough of LPA off Surigao del Sur.
