MANILA, Philippines — A low-pressure area spotted off Eastern Samar will continue to bring rains over parts of Luzon and the Visayas in the next two days.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the weather system would bring cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms over Eastern and Central Visayas, Bicol, Quezon province, including Polillo Island, Aurora and Isabela.

As of 3 p.m. yesterday, the weather disturbance was spotted 255 kilometers east- northeast of Borongan City, Eastern Samar.

PAGASA weather forecaster Chris Perez said the low-pressure area was not expected to develop into a tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours.

The next cyclone will be given the local name Igme.

PAGASA said the southwest monsoon would bring cloudy skies with scattered rains and thunderstorms over Metro Manila, Mimaropa, the rest of Calabarzon and Central Luzon, Western Visayas and Zamboanga peninsula until tomorrow.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains due to thunderstorms.

Perez said Metro Manila residents could expect an improvement in the weather  this weekend.
