MANILA—State weather bureau PAGASA said Saturday it was monitoring 2 low-pressure areas (LPAs) off Mindanao.

One brewing storm was located 135 kilometers east of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte as of 3 a.m. Saturday, weather specialist Meno Mendoza said.

The other weather disturbance was located 185 kilometers west of Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte, he added.

Mendoza said the LPAs are unlikely to become tropical cyclones, but would trigger rains in many parts of the country.

Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol Region, the Visayas, Caraga, Northern Mindanao, and Zamboanga Peninsula will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.

PAGASA warned of possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms in the said areas.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon or amihan will bring cloudy skies with light rains over Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region and Cagayan Valley.
