PAGASA weather advisory posted as of 11:00 a.m, "At 8:00 AM today, the Low Pressure Area (LPA) was estimated at 790 km East of Mindanao."

PAGASA forecaster Elvie Enriquez said in an interview on dzBB radio, "Itong LPA nag-landfall past midnight sa Davao Oriental ... Nakikita natin ang LPA, matapos lumampas ng kalupaan ng Mindanao at tumapak sa karagatan ng Bohol Sea between Palawan and Visayas, malaki ang possibility mag-develop na ganap na bagyong tropikal,"

Enriquez added that the LPA is likely to become a tropical depression. If it does, this will be the first cyclone for 2013 and will be given a codenamed Auring.

Meanwhile, PAGASA advised fishing boats and other small seacraft not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves.
