MANILA, Philippines — A low-pressure area spotted off Romblon will dump rains over most parts of the country today, the state weather bureau said.

In its weather advisory issued at 11 a.m. yesterday, the Philippinee Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the weather system will bring moderate to heavy rains over the Bicol region, Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon), Marinduque and Romblon in the next 24 hours.

“Flash flooding and rain-induced landslides are possible especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps. The public and disaster risk management offices concerned are advised to take appropriate measures,” PAGASA said.

As of 3 p.m. the low-pressure area was estimated at 45 kilometers north of Romblon, Romblon. PAGASA said it is “embedded” in the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) which is currently persisting over Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

PAGASA said the interaction of the two weather systems will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol region, Western Visayas and the provinces of La Union, Pangasinan, Nueva Vizcaya, Benguet and Ifugao.

The rest of the country, meanwhile, will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to the ITCZ and localized thunderstorms.

Light to moderate sea condition can also be expected in the seaboards of Visayas, Mindanao, Palawan and the rest of Luzon with waves as high as 0.6 to 2.5 meters.

In an extended weather outlook, PAGASA said the cloudy weather with rain showers and thunderstorms will persist over Metro Manila and the rest of the country until Thursday.
