Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 24) — Rains continue to pour over western Luzon brought by the southwest monsoon or Habagat while a low pressure area (LPA) is moving its way to the country, weather officials said.

In a 4 a.m. update Tuesday, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the Habagat will continue to bring rains over Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro provinces and Palawan.

Ilocos region, Central Luzon, Metro Manila, and the rest of CALABARZON will experience occasional rains, PAGASA advised.

Weather officials continue to monitor the LPA which may enter Philippine territory in the next two to three days.

PAGASA said it will not make landfall, however, it may develop into a tropical depression. When it happens, the new tropical depression will be named "Karding."

The LPA was last spotted 1,555 kilometers east of northern Luzon at 4 a.m..
