MANILA, Philippines – Weather bureau PAGASA is monitoring a low-pressure area (LPA) last spotted 560 kilometers east of Southern Mindanao.

The LPA is embedded along the Intertropical Convergence Zone affecting Visayas and Mindanao.

If the LPA develops into a storm, it will be named “Pablo,” according to PAGASA.

Both Visayas and Mindanao will experience occasional light to moderate rains or thunderstorms.

Those in the Bicol region can expect light rains, while the rest of Luzon, including Metro Manila, will stay generally sunny with only isolated, brief showers.

Three more storms are expected to enter the Philippines for the rest of the year. -- Reports from ANC, DZMM.
