Tropical Depression Auring (Dujuan) weakened into a low pressure area as it approaches Bicol, PAGASA said Monday, as it warned of continuous rains. Storm wind signals were lifted.

The remnants of Auring was spotted off Rapu-Rapu, Albay, at 11 a.m. It is expected to traverse Bicol region, southern Quezon, Marinduque, and northern Mindoro in the next 24 hours, PAGASA said.

"There is an increasing likelihood of the disturbance dissipating while traversing Southern Luzon," it said.
