MANILA – The weather bureau on Monday lifted Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 hoisted in several areas as Kabayan further weakened into a remnant low as of the 5 p.m. bulletin.

The low-pressure area (LPA) was last spotted in the vicinity of Impasug-ong, Bukidnon, moving northwestward at 25 kph.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the LPA could emerge over the Sulu Sea on Monday night.

"A slight improvement in the environmental conditions may allow this disturbance to reorganize and re-develop into a tropical depression," PAGASA added.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon is forecast to bring gusty conditions over most of Luzon and the Visayas until Tuesday.

Additionally, it would cause rough to very rough seas over the coastal waters along the seaboard of Northern Luzon, the eastern and central seaboards of the Visayas, and the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon, and Mindanao.

Mariners of small vessels are advised to remain in port or seek safe harbor.

Moderate to rough seas are forecast over the western seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon, the western and northern seaboards of Mindanao, and the remaining seaboard of the Visayas.

PAGASA advised mariners of motor bancas and similarly sized vessels to take precautionary measures while venturing out to the sea and avoid navigating in these conditions.

PAGASA added that the LPA could still affect the shear line, and could cause heavy rainfall over the eastern portion of Southern Luzon.
