A low-pressure area is causing rains across Eastern Visayas and is expected to bring more rains throughout the weekend.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the LPA can intensify into a tropical depression within the next two days.
As of 5:00 AM today, the LPA was estimated based on all available data at 370 kilometers east of Borongan City, Eastern Samar and is embedded along Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and currently affects Eastern Visayas and Mindanao.
The state weather bureau said once the LPA develops into a cyclone, it will be named Carina. PAGASA meanwhile said that the weather disturbance is moving towards northern Luzon.
The weather condition can possibly also add up to the southwest monsoon which will bring light to moderate and sometimes heavy rains over Mimaropa region and Metro Manila until Sunday.
The Philippines has 20 annual typhoon visits. Only two storms have entered the country to date.
