MANILA, Philippines — A low-pressure area entered the Philippine area of responsibility yesterday and is expected to develop into a tropical depression in the next two days.

Chris Perez, weather forecaster at the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), said the trough of the weather disturbance was expected to bring rains over Eastern Visayas, Caraga and Davao regions last night.

As of 3 p.m. yesterday, the low-pressure area was spotted at 1,035 east of Virac, Catanduanes.

Perez said it is expected to move northwest toward Northern or Central Luzon in the coming days.

The northeasterly windflow will bring cloudy skies with rain showers over Metro Manila, the Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon and Bicol region today.

Metro Manila will experience fair weather tomorrow. By Wednesday and Thursday, cloudy skies with rains and thunderstorms will prevail over the capital, Perez said.

Fair weather will also persist over Baguio City today until tomorrow. It will experience cloudy skies with rains by Wednesday and Thursday.

“If the weather disturbance continues to move toward Northern or Central Luzon, inclement weather is expected over Baguio City on Thursday,” Perez said.

Cloudy skies with rain showers will prevail over the Bicol region until Thursday. Light to moderate rains with gusty winds are likely over the area on Wednesday, he said.

Visayas will experience cloudy skies with rain showers until Wednesday. PAGASA expects an improvement in weather conditions over the region by Thursday.

In Mindanao, warm and humid weather will prevail apart from afternoon or evening rain showers in the next three days.
