MANILA (UPDATED) — Rain showers are expected to continue over Metro Manila and other parts of Luzon on Friday as a low pressure area crosses Quezon province, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

The LPA and the southwest monsoon or habagat will bring at times intense rains over Bicol Region, Aurora, Quezon, Marinduque, Romblon, and Mindoro, according to PAGASA.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila, Visayas, Palawan, and the rest of Central Luzon and Calabarzon will experience light to moderate with at times heavy rains, the weather agency said.

"Under these conditions, scattered flooding and rain-induced landslides are likely, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards," PAGASA said.

As of 10 a.m., the LPA was spotted over the coastal waters of Mauban, Quezon. It is unlikely to develop into a tropical depression in the next 24 hours, PAGASA said in its 11 a.m. bulletin.

The LPA will move northwestward and cross the Calabarzon-Central Luzon area. It will reach the West Philippine Sea by Saturday.
