The Low Pressure Area (LPA), which was last spotted at 400 kms ESE of Virac, Catanduanes, has now developed into a tropical depression and now named "Mina," a PAGASA officer told ABS-CBN's "Umagang Kay Ganda" at around 6 a.m. Monday. The PAGASA is yet to publish its first bulletin on Bagyong Mina later today but the officer stipulated that the weather disturbance is still "weak."
On its last "Public Weather Forecast", the weather bureau said that there is also an Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) in the country which will bring scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms in Central and Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Widespread rains are also expected over the Eastern Visayas and Eastern Mindanao which may trigger flashfloods and landslides, the PAGASA added.
