(There is a low chance this LPA would develop into a storm. It will move northwest and may go near Mindanao.)

Meanwhile, Ilocos, Bicol, and Cagayan Valley regions will experience generally fair weather with a low chance of rain today, May 7.

Rojas said the rest of Luzon may experience rains in the afternoon or evening due to localized thunderstorms.

and meanwhile will have hot and humid weather with localized thunderstorms possibly occurring in the afternoon and evening.
