MANILA—The trough of a low pressure area will bring scattered rains in some parts of the country, the state weather bureau said early Sunday.

As of 3 a.m., the LPA was last spotted 1,345 km east of Visayas, outside the Philippine area of responsibility.

It is expected to enter PAR Sunday night or Monday morning, PAGASA said.

Isolated rainshowers will be experienced over Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol region, Visayas, and Mindanao due to the trough of the LPA.

Northern and Central Luzon will meanwhile experience fair weather, with localized thunderstorms in the afternoon or the evening.

PAGASA said the LPA could develop into a tropical depression by Tuesday and would be named "Falcon," the country's 6th tropical cyclone this year.

Residents along mountain slopes are advised to take precautionary measures against possible hazards such as landslides, mudslides, rockslides and flash floods.
