PAGASA, in its latest weather bulletin issued at 5 a.m., said the rains experienced in Metro Manila and parts of Luzon were brought by a low pressure area (LPA) spotted 30 kilometers north of Ambulong, Batangas as of 2 a.m.

PAGASA forecaster Ricky Fabregas said southern and central Luzon including Metro Manila will still experience rains from this weather system today.

Fabregas said the LPA was moving slowly in a northwest direction. It is expected to be over the West Philippine Sea by Wednesday where it will eventually dissipate.

PAGASA warned residents living in low-lying areas and along mountain slopes to be alert for possible occurrence of flashfloods and landslides. – with reports from dzMM, ANC
