Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 7) — The low pressure area (LPA) near Davao del Sur has left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) but is still forecast to bring rains over Mindanao, the state weather bureau reported Saturday.

In its 11 p.m. advisory, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the trough of the LPA will continue to cause moderate to heavy rains over the Davao Region, Caraga, and Northern Mindanao.

Meanwhile, light to moderate with at times heavy rains may be experienced in the Visayas, the southern portion of Palawan, and the rest of Mindanao.

The LPA entered the country's weather monitoring area Saturday morning, but had little possibility of developing into a tropical cyclone.

As for its path, PAGASA predicted that the weather disturbance would reenter PAR by Monday, Jan. 9, or Tuesday, Jan. 10.

It also reported that the northeast monsoon would get stronger and would continue to shower parts of Metro Manila and Luzon.
