MANILA -- The low pressure area east of Surigao del Sur developed into tropical depression Liwayway on Sunday morning, the state weather bureau said.

As of 10 a.m., Liwayway was last spotted 405 kilometers east northeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur, packing maximum winds of up to 45 km per hour and gusts of up to 55 kph.

The weather disturbance, unlikely to make landfall, is expected to leave the Philippine area of responsibility on Thursday morning if it continues to move northwest at 20 kph.

Caraga and Davao region may experience scattered light to moderate rains with at times heavy rains due to the trough of Liwayway, PAGASA said.

It advised residents to take precautionary measures, coordinate with local disaster offices, and monitor the next weather update at 11 p.m. Sunday.

PAGASA earlier said tropical depression Kabayan left PAR at 6 a.m., just four hours after entering it, and is now headed to southern China.
