The two low pressure areas (LPAs) inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) will continue to trigger rain in the next 24 hours, warned the state weather bureau.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the first LPA entered the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) at 8 a.m., and was located 135 kilometers north-northwest of Zamboanga City.
The other weather disturbance developed at 8 a.m. on Saturday and, as of 4 p.m., was some 185 km east of Guiuan, Eastern Samar.
Pagasa said the weather disturbances were not likely to intensify into tropical depressions, but the combined effects of the two LPAs will bring moderate rain over the Calabarzon, Mimaropa and Bicol regions.
Pagasa warned of possible hazards brought by continuous rains, such as floods and landslides. Pagasa also warned of possible swelling of channels and rivers that could lead to flooding.
Meanwhile, the LPA near Visayas will move toward the eastern section of Southern Luzon.
