MANILA, Philippines – A low pressure area (LPA) has been located outside the Philippines' area of ​​responsibility, southeast of South Cotabato, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

According to Pagasa meteorologist Chenel Dominguez, the LPA was last spotted 770 kilometers southeast of General Santos City, South Cotabato province.

The LPA trough is forecast to affect parts of Mindanao on Friday, specifically the Davao region, where cloudy skies and rain are expected.

“This Davao region will be affected by the LPA valley, so we can expect cloudy weather with scattered rains,” Dominguez said in the latest Pagasa weather forecast.
