MANILA – Some areas in the country will continue to experience rains due to the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) affecting Southern Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao, a weather forecaster said Wednesday.
"(The) ITCZ will remain the prevailing weather system within the next three days. This will cause cloudy skies, and eventually, rains," said Benison Estareja of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
The Bicol region and Quezon province will experience rains and thunderstorms.
Estareja said residents must take precautions against possible flooding in the afternoon.
For Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon, he said sunny weather may be experienced until noon, while localized thunderstorms are likely in the afternoon.
The temperature in Cagayan Valley may reach 34°C, and in Metro Manila, up to 32°C.
Estareja said Eastern Visayas, Central Visayas, and Mindanao will have light to moderate, with at times heavy rains during thunderstorms. He cautioned residents against possible flooding and landslides.
PAGASA forecast isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms over the rest of the country.
Meanwhile, light to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas will continue to prevail over the entire archipelago.
No weather disturbance is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility in the next three days, Estareja said. (PNA)
