Most of the country will experience rain on Wednesday due to the southwest monsoon, the state weather bureau said.

Metro Manila and the regions of Ilocos, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Bicol, Eastern and Central Visayas, Caraga and Zamboanga peninsula will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rain and thunderstorms, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rains or thunderstorms.
