MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Southern Luzon should prepare for cloudy skies with widespread rain, the state weather bureau said Wednesday, September 5, even as a low pressure area (LPA) in the Philippines has dissipated.

The rain in Southern Luzon may trigger flash floods and landslides, added the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) in its 5 am bulletin Wednesday.

In a phone interview with Rappler, PAGASA forecaster Jori Loiz quelled fears of a storm.

The LPA has dissipated as of 11 am on Wednesday.

The southwest monsoon is likewise in the “weakening stage,” he said. Loiz, however, did not discount the possibility that the monsoon could cause rain in parts of the country.

Meanwhile, the rest of the country will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms, according to PAGASA.
