A low pressure area or brewing storm will dampen large swaths of Mindanao Sunday, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

Swirling east of the southern island, the LPA will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate in Surigao Del Sur, Compostella Valley, Davao Oriental, Davao Occidental and Davao Del Sur, PAGASA meteorologist Obet Badrina told radio DZMM.

As of 8 a.m., the LPA was still outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) and unlikely to intensify into a tropical cyclone within the day, Badrina said.

Meanwhile, tropical storm "Nando", which brought rains in Bicol and Central Luzon Saturday, has left PAR and headed for China.

Metro Manila, Visayas and the rest of the country are expected to experience good weather, Badrina said.
