PAGASA watches 2 weather systems
Cloudy skies and rains are expected over the western section of the country due to the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and a low-pressure area (LPA) embedded along the ITCZ, a weather forecaster said in a report by Philippine News Agency.
"Almost the whole day, light to moderate rains will be experienced over Mimaropa, Western Visayas, and the Zamboanga Peninsula. Heavy rains may be experienced in the afternoon due to thunderstorms," said Benison Estareja of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
He cautioned that floods and flash floods are possible in these areas during heavy rains.
"Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have fair, sunny weather. It will be warm and humid until noon. Localized thunderstorms will prevail in the afternoon so there are chances of rains," Estareja said.
The LPA, last observed 205 km. east-northeast of Pagasa Island, Palawan, has a slim chance of developing into a tropical cyclone within 24 hours.
The LPA is also forecast to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility within the day.
Light to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas will continue to prevail over the entire archipelago.
