MANILA – Scattered rain showers will dampen most parts of the country Monday due to a low pressure area, the weather bureau said.

The LPA was last seen 70 kilometers north northwest of Virac, Catanduanes, or 100 kilometers east of Daet, Camarines Norte.

"It has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next 24 to 48 hours," Aldczar Aurelio of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

The LPA will bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Visayas, Bicol Region, Region 4-A (Calabarzon), Region 4-B (Mimaropa), Isabela, and Aurora.

Flash floods or landslides are likely due to moderate to at times heavy rains.

The rest of the country will experience isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.

The maximum temperature in Laoag and Tuguegarao could reach 33 °C. The temperature in Metro Manila, the Kalayaan Islands and Puerto Princesa could reach 32 °C.

Davao, Cebu and Iloilo's maximum temperature could reach 32 °C.

Meanwhile, light to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas will continue to prevail across the archipelago. (PNA)
