“At 10:00 AM today, a Low Pressure Area (LPA) was estimated based on all available data at 245 km East of Guiuan, Eastern Samar (10.6°N, 127.9°E). This weather disturbance is less likely to develop into a tropical depression.

Meanwhile, the Tail-End of a Frontal System is affecting the eastern section of Southern Luzon.  Hazards affecting land areas: Today, these weather systems will bring moderate to heavy rains over Eastern Visayas and Caraga. Light to moderate with at times heavy rainshowers during thunderstorms will be experienced over Bicol Region, Davao Oriental, and the rest of Visayas.

Flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides may occur during heavy or prolonged periods of rainfall, especially in areas identified to be highly susceptible to these hazards or in localities that received significant amount of rainfall over the past couple of days or weeks.”

As of now, PAGASA does not expect the LPA to turn into a tropical depression, but warned residents of Eastern Visayas and Caraga about moderate to heavy rains due to the said weather system. iTacloban
