PAGASA said as of 4 a.m., a low pressure area was spotted 45 kilometers southwest of Daet, Camarines Norte.

PAGASA forecaster Gener Quitlong said the LPA has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone, but it will bring rains over parts of the country.

In its 24-hour weather forecast for Tuesday, PAGASA said Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Bicol Region and the provinces of Pangasinan, Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms.
