MANILA, Philippines – Cebu Pacific and AirPhil Express on Tuesday cancelled some of its domestic flights due to bad weather.

In its official Twitter account, Cebu Pacific said the following flights were cancelled:

AirPhil Express, meanwhile, cancelled flights 2P 265 and 2P 266 (Manila-Naga-Manila).

PAGASA, in its latest weather bulletin issued at 5 a.m., said the rains experienced in Metro Manila and parts of
Luzon were brought by a low pressure area (LPA) spotted 30 kilometers north of Ambulong, Batangas as of 2 a.m.

It said southern and central Luzon including Metro Manila will still experience rains from this weather system today.

The LPA was moving slowly in a northwest direction. It is expected to be over the West Philippine Sea by Wednesday where it will eventually dissipate.

PAGASA warned residents living in low-lying areas and along mountain slopes to be alert for possible occurrence of flashfloods and landslides.
