A low pressure area (LPA) located northeast of Surigao del Norte will bring scattered rain showers over Visayas and six other areas on Sunday, PAGASA said in its weather forecast.

Visayas, Caraga, Northern Mindanao, Bicol Region, Quezon, Romblon, and Marinduque will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the LPA. Flash floods or landslides may result due to moderate to heavy and at times intense rains.

At 3 a.m. Sunday, the LPA was estimated to be located at 195 km northeast of Surigao City, Surigao del Norte or 160 km east of Tacloban City, Leyte.

Meanwhile, the Northeast Monsoon (Amihan) is affecting Luzon.

Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Aurora will have cloudy skies with rains due to the monsoon. Moderate to at times heavy rains may possibly result in flash floods or landslides.

The rest of Mindanao and the rest of Mimaropa on the other hand will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms due to localized thunderstorms. Severe thunderstorms may possibly lead to flash floods or landslides.

Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon will experience having partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with light rains due to the monsoon.
