MANILA, Philippines — Two low-pressure areas being monitored by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) will continue to bring rain in various parts of the country.

In its latest bulletin, PAGASA said the weather disturbance spotted in the vicinity of Laak, Davao de Oro would be named Agaton if it develops into a typhoon.

It will be the first typhoon to hit the country this year.

The weather system will bring rain in Mindanao, parts of the Visayas and Palawan.

PAGASA said the weather disturbance still has a low chance of developing into a typhoon, but it would bring rainfall that could result in flooding and landslides in low-lying and mountainous areas.

Another low-pressure area spotted 2,710 kilometers east of Mindanao is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility in the next few days.

PAGASA said the northeasterly surface windflow would bring rain in Luzon especially in Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon and Quezon province.

The rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, will experience cloudy skies with less chance of rainfall as the weather improves in the next three days.
