MANILA -- A brewing storm and the habagat will bring rains to large swaths of the country on Sunday, the state weather bureau said. 

The low pressure area or brewing storm was 2,195 kilometers east of Visayas at 3 a.m., said PAGASA weather forecaster Ariel Rojas. 

Its trough or extension will bring cloudy skies with scattered rains over Davao and Soccsksargen, he told radio DZMM. 

The LPA may enter the Philippine area of responsibility on Monday, intensify into a storm named Ineng, and move in a northwest direction, added Rojas. 

Meanwhile, the habagat will bring cloudy skies with scattered rains over Ilocos and Cordillera regions, Batanes and Babuyan islands, and Zambales and Bataan provinces, he said. 

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience hot and fair weather that may be marred by localized thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening.
