Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 25) — It seems the gloomy weather will not go away anytime soon as another weather system is seen to bring rains to the country this week, weather officials said Sunday.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said it is monitoring a low pressure area (LPA) currently outside Philippine territory. It is expected to enter the country by Monday, the weather agency said.

The LPA will also most likely develop into a tropical depression, with northern and central Luzon likely to be the most affected areas, PAGASA said.

The LPA was last seen 1,695 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon, or habagat, will continue to bring cloudy skies, scattered rains and thunderstorms to Batanes, the Babuyan Group of Islands, Ilocos Region, Cordillera Region, Zambales, Bataan, Metro Manila, CALABARZON and MIMAROPA.

This comes in the wake of severe tropical storm “Bailu,” locally named “Ineng,” which left the country Saturday evening. It is now located 500 kilometers west northwest of Basco, Batanes.
