MANILA, Philippines — State weather bureau PAGASA is monitoring two low pressure systems: one located north of Luzon and another off Mindanao.

In a bulletin Tuesday, PAGASA said the low pressure area inside the Philippine area of responsibility was spotted 160 kilometers north northwest of Laoag City in Ilocos Norte.

It has a low chance of developing into a tropical cyclone but its trough or extension is expected to bring rains to Luzon.

The trough or extension of the LPA, however, will bring cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila, the Ilocos region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Bicol, Mindoro provinces, Marinduque and Romblon.

The other LPA outside PAR was located 1,265 kilometers east of Mindanao. Moving slowly, the weather system is seen to enter the country’s jurisdiction late Tuesday or Wednesday morning.

It is also not expected to become a tropical cyclone as it may dissipate as while approaching the Mindanao landmass.
