PAGASA’s Tropical Cyclone-Threat Potential states that the likelihood of this LPA transforming into a Tropical Cyclone is low. However, PAGASA will continue to monitor it in case any changes occur.

Palawan, Bicol Region, Visayas, and Mindanao will have “cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms” due to the LPA. Such weather conditions will cause “possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to, at times, heavy rains.”

The Northeast Monsoon will affect Cagayan Valley, Apayao, and Ilocos Norte, bringing “cloudy skies with rains.” Residents from these areas should also prepare for “possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to, at times, heavy rains.”

The Northeast Monsoon will also affect Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon. However, the effects on these areas will be less threatening. That’s because residents can expect “partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light rains, which brings “no significant impact” on the land areas.
