MANILA, Philippines — Another low-pressure area has entered the Philippine area of responsibility and will affect the country in the next few days.

Though the weather disturbance is less likely to develop into a typhoon, it is expected to still bring light to moderate rainfall.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the low-pressure area was sighted at about 960 kilometers east of Mindanao as of yesterday morning.

Coupled with the southwest monsoon, the state weather bureau said rains are expected over Central and Southern Luzon.

PAGASA said both weather systems will bring light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, Occidental Mindoro, Northern Palawan, Kalayaan Islands, Caraga and the Davao region.

“Scattered flooding and rain-induced landslides are likely, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps and in areas with significant antecedent rainfall,” it warned.

PAGASA, in a weather update yesterday, said the other low-pressure area last seen west of Dagupan City, Pangasinan left the Philippine area of responsibility Sunday afternoon.
