MANILA, Philippines -- The state weather bureau warned of possible flashfloods and landslides Tuesday with the low-pressure area southeast of Davao City expected to dump moderate to heavy rainshowers and thunderstorms over Mindanao, Eastern Visayas and Bicol.

The 24-hour outlook issued by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration also said the Cagayan Valley and Aurora and Quezon provinces will experience cloudiness with light rains as the northeast monsoon affects Northern Luzon.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy with brief rainshowers or thunderstorms.

Moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast to north will prevail throughout the archipelago and the coastal waters will be moderate to rough.

Pagasa said Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Sur, Davao Oriental, Compostela Valley, Dinagat Island, Misamis Oriental, Davao del Norte and Davao del Sur will experience moderate to heavy rains while rains will be light to moderate over the rest of Mindanao.

Light to moderate rains will be felt over some areas in Northern Samar, Samar, Eastern Samar, Leyte, Southern Leyte, Bohol, Masbate, Sorsogon and Catanduanes.
