MANILA — A low pressure area (LPA) east of Mindanao is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility on Thursday and bring rains in Eastern Visayas and portions of Southern Luzon over the weekend.

In a press briefing on Wednesday, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the LPA, that was, as of Wednesday noon, located at 1,415 kilometers east of Mindanao, would make landfall over Eastern Visayas by early evening of Saturday, cross the Southern Luzon-Visayas area and exit Mindoro by early morning of Monday.

During the weekend, the LPA is expected to dump moderate to occasionally heavy rains and thunderstorms along its track particularly in the Bicol, Samar and Leyte areas; and bring light to moderate rains and thunderstorms in its peripheries in the rest of southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Metro Manila may experience light rains starting Sunday afternoon up to Monday morning.
