MANILA – A potential cyclone was spotted off Mindanao and may bring rains over parts of the country this week, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

PAGASA said as of 4 a.m. Tuesday, the low pressure area was spotted 880 kilometers east of Mindanao.

Speaking to dzMM, PAGASA weather forecaster Glaiza Escullar said the LPA has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone, but it may pass over Visayas and Luzon, including Metro Manila, this week and bring rains.

In its 24-hour weather forecast for Tuesday, PAGASA said the whole country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains or thunderstorms, mostly in the eastern section.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the east to northeast will prevail over northern Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough, PAGASA said.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas.
