MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) is seeing two weather disturbances that might affect the country until the end of June.

PAGASA said a low-pressure area and the southwest monsoon are likely to bring rains in some parts of the country, especially in the last days of the month.

The low-pressure area, it added, could form as early as today in eastern Visayas and bring rains over most parts of Southern Luzon, the Visayas and Mindanao. However, this weather disturbance has a low chance of developing into a typhoon.

PAGASA said the easterlies would continue to bring rains over a large part of Luzon, the Visayas and the western section of Mindanao this week until the start of July. Scattered rainshowers are to be expected over Davao region and in the provinces of Agusan del Sur and Surigao del Sur.

The easterlies and localized thunderstorms will also affect Metro Manila and the rest of the country. Generally hot and fair weather, with cloudy skies and isolated rainshowers, can be expected over these areas, especially in the afternoon.

PAGASA warned of possible flash floods and landslides during severe thunderstorms.

Temperatures will range between 24 to 33 degrees Celsius. –  Michael Punongbayan
