MANILA, Philippines — The state weather bureau, PAGASA, now monitors a low-pressure area off Surigao del Sur, embedded along an intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) affecting Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao.

As of 10 a.m. on Wednesday, the LPA was located over the coastal waters of Laguindingan town in Misamis Oriental. It is expected to bring moderate to heavy rains over several regions of the country, and it could become the second storm to hit the Philippines this year.

In the next 24 hours, the LPA will bring light to moderate with occasional heavy rains over the Bicol Region, Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, and Davao Region. The storm is expected to track a westward path slowly and will cross the Sulu Sea and Palawan between Wednesday and early Saturday.
