Weather bureau PAGASA said the combined effects of the southwest monsoon and an active low pressure area (LPA) brought heavy rains in some parts of Metro Manila and nearby areas since Thursday night.

PAGASA said the southwest monsoon and active LPA will particularly affect the eastern portion of central and southern Luzon.

The active LPA was last spotted 320 kilometers east northeast of Casiguran, Aurora.

Should the active LPA becomes a cyclone, it will be named “Ferdie.” It will be considered a tropical depression once it gains wind strength between 55-64 kilometers per hour.

Meanwhile, PAGASA said Visayas and Mindanao will experience rains brought by the southwest monsoon. – with reports from dzMM and ANC
