Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, August 8) — Tropical Depression Enteng has slightly intensified and is expected to bring scattered light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Bicol, weather agency PAGASA said Saturday.

PAGASA said Enteng will intensify into a storm hours before it is expected to exit the agency's monitoring area on Sunday afternoon.

The weather bureau said Enteng will "track generally northward throughout the forecast period and will remain far from the Philippine landmass."

In its latest bulletin, PAGASA said the depression now packs sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour near the center and its gustiness is up to 70 kph. It was last spotted at 500 kilometers east-northeast of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan.

It warned against sea travel along the coasts of Luzon and Visayas islands.

PAGASA also mentioned that they are monitoring a low pressure area located at 260 kilometers west of Iba, Zambales. Weather specialist Joey Figuracion said that the LPA can potentially become a tropical depression.

Residents of Zambales, Bataan, Batangas, Mindoro provinces, Romblon, and northern Palawan (including Calamian, Cuyo, and Kalayaan Islands) should also brace for rains, PAGASA said.

Monsoon rains will also occasionally occur in Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, Bulacan, Metro Manila, Cavite, Mindoro provinces, Calamian Islands, and Kalayaan Islands, and occasional rains over Western Visayas and the rest of Luzon, it added.

It will also be a rainy Sunday in Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, Bulacan, Metro Manila, Cavite, Mindoro provinces, Calamian Islands, and Kalayaan Islands, and occasionally over the rest of Luzon and Western Visayas, PAGASA said.
