MANILA – A new low pressure area (LPA) entered the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Friday morning, state weather bureau PAGASA said.
PAGASA said as of 10 a.m., the LPA was spotted 580 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.
"This weather system will bring cloudy skies with moderate to occasionally heavy rains over Eastern Mindanao which may trigger flashfloods and landslides," PAGASA said.
"Eastern Visayas and the rest of Mindanao will have scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms," it added.
If the LPA develops into a tropical depression, it will be named "Nando."
