According to PAGASA, the Active Low Pressure Area (ALPA) was estimated based on satellite and surface data at 930 km east of Borongan, Eastern Samar (11.8°N, 134.6°E). The other low pressure area east of Southern Luzon has now dissipated. JTWC reported winds at the area 15 to 20 knots. System is moving west-northwestward at speed of 4 knots. Dynamic models indicate that the system will continue to consolidate and develop into a tropical depression within next 12-36 hours as it moves toward northern Luzon in Philippines.

The system is expected to bring scattered to widespread rains over Bicol Region and Eastern Visayas. Residents living in low-lying areas and along mountain slopes are advised to be on alert for possible occurrence of flashfloods and landslides.
