MANILA – Light rains may still be experienced across Luzon due to the northeast monsoon affecting the island, the weather bureau said Friday.

The Visayas and Mindanao, on the other hand, will have fair weather with isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its 5 a.m. weather bulletin.

Flash floods or landslides are possible during severe thunderstorms, it warned.

Moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough seas will prevail over Luzon and the eastern section of the Visayas and Mindanao.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate with slight to moderate seas, PAGASA said.

Meanwhile, PAGASA forecaster Benison Estareja said a circulation that could develop into a low-pressure area (LPA) is being monitored east of Mindanao.

"This could develop into an LPA either Saturday or Sunday," he said, adding that the LPA could bring rains over Eastern Mindanao, particularly in Caraga and Davao Region, by Sunday afternoon. (PNA)
