MANILA — A new low-pressure area (LPA) has formed over the Philippine Sea east of Luzon, according to state weather bureau PAGASA.

At 10 a.m. Friday, it was located 1,210 kilometers east of Central Luzon.

The new LPA, however, is less likely to develop into a tropical depression in the next 48 hours, PAGASA said.

It will slowly move northwestward over the Philippine Sea in the next few days and approach extreme northern Luzon by Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

It may dissipate within the day.
