Meanwhile, state weather bureau PAGASA says there is no tropical cyclone existing within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) as of today, but a Low Pressure Area (LPA) was spotted at 330 kilometers West of Puerto Princesa City as of 2:00 a.m. Friday.

Pagasa earlier announced that the convergence of the northeast monsoon and the winds coming from the Pacific Ocean will cause light but continuous downpours over Metro Manila until this weekend.
