MANILA - Moderate to occasionally heavy rains are expected over the regions of Eastern Visayas and Caraga in Northern Mindanao, state weather bureau PAGASA said Sunday.

PAGASA said rains brought by a low pressure area (LPA) and the tail end of a cold front may trigger landslides and floods in the 2 regions.

The LPA was last spotted 70 kilometers east of Davao City at 4 a.m. It is unlikely to intensify into a typhoon, but will remain in the Philippine area of responsibility for a few days.

Meanwhile, cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms will prevail over Bicol Region, the rest of Visayas, rest of Mindanao, Calabarzon and the provinces of Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Aurora.

Cloudy skies with light rains are expected over Metro Manila, Cagayan Valley Region and rest of Central Luzon.

The rest of Luzon will experience isolated light rains.

PAGASA added that moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas.

Coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be moderate to rough.
