MANILA, Philippines — Two low pressure areas will bring rains to Central and Southern Luzon and the Visayas on Monday, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

At 2 a.m., a shallow low pressure area was located 340 kilometers north northwest of Palawan, while a low pressure area was located 900 kilometers east of the Bicol Region, the state weather bureau said in its website.

“Central and Southern Luzon and Visayas will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to at times cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening,” it said.

A low pressure area develops in three stages — shallow low pressure area, low pressure area, and active low pressure area — before becoming a tropical depression.

Last week, Typhoon “Karen” (international codename: Nuri) slammed into northern Luzon, killing at least seven people and destroying P133 million worth of crops and infrastructure.
