MANILA – Several areas in the country will continue to experience scattered rain showers and thunderstorms caused by a low pressure area (formerly known as Tropical Depression Queenie), the weather bureau said Thursday.

The LPA was last tracked 420 kilometers east of General Santos City, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its latest weather update.

Eastern Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, Davao Region, Soccsksargen, Bohol, Lanao del Sur, and Maguindanao provinces may experience flash floods or landslides due to moderate with at times heavy rains.

Meanwhile, the rest of the country will have isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.

Moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough seas will prevail over Northern Luzon.

Rough to very rough seas are forecast over the northern seaboard of Northern Luzon.

PAGASA advised fishing boats and other small sea vessels not to venture into the sea, and larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate with slight to moderate seas. (PNA)
