MANILA, Philippines — As Severe Tropical Storm Bailu, locally known as "Ineng," continues to barrel away from the country's landmass after leaving the Philippine area of responsibility Saturday evening, PAGASA forecast that the new low pressure area it is monitoring could possibly develop into a tropical cyclone.

The LPA is located 1,695 km east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur, the state weather bureau said in its 5 a.m. weather update on Sunday.

It is seen to enter PAR on Monday and is expected to develop into a tropical cyclone while inside. 

It will be assigned the local name "Jenny," potentially the third tropical cyclone to hit the country this month. 

PAGASA said two to four tropical cyclones are expected to enter PAR in August, bringing much-needed rain to replenish Angat Dam, the primary water source of Metro Manila.

Meanwhile, the state weather bureau said the southwest monsoon would continue to bring rains over western Luzon today. — Mikas Matsuzawa
