Isolated rain and thunderstorm are expected over Metro Manila and the rest of the country on Sunday, Father’s Day, according to the state weather bureau.

In a 24-hour public weather forecast issued at 5 a.m., the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said rain was expected despite a ridge of high pressure area  affecting the eastern section of Luzon and Visayas.

High pressure areas usually bring sunny and fair weather.
