MANILA -- The chance for the Low Pressure Area (Alpa) spotted off Central Luzon to develop into a storm is very slim as it is already close to hitting land, said the weather bureau Sunday.

The weather disturbance still hovers at 80 kilometers east of Central Luzon on Sunday morning, and is expected to bring scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over the region.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said there is no major activity in past 12 hours after the weather disturbance became an active LPA. It was first spotted on Saturday as a shallow LPA.

Pagasa said Luzon and Mindanao regions will also experience cloudy skies with scattered to widespread rains due to the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) affecting Mindanao.

Residents are advised to be vigilant as the rains may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

Pagasa said moderate to strong winds coming from the southeast will prevail over the eastern section of Luzon and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.

Light to moderate winds blowing from the southeast will also prevail over the rest of the country with slight to moderate seas, it added. (Sunnex)
