Weather specialist Gener Quitlong said that the LPA has no direct effect on the country, but its trough is affecting Visayas, Bicol Region, Caraga, and Northern Mindanao.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Rizal, and Zambales will continue to experience heavy rains.

Light to moderate rains will prevail over Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Bulacan, Laguna, and Quezon.
