MANILA, Philippines — Rainshowers are expected in various areas of the country on Wednesday as the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) monitored two low pressure areas (LPA) on Wednesday.

The state weather bureau said one of the LPAs was spotted in the vicinity of Laak, Davao de Oro as of 3 a.m., bringing rainshowers in the whole Mindanao and Visayas regions, as well as the province of Palawan.
