Due to the ITCZ, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, Western Visayas, and Palawan will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, Metro Manila and other parts of the country are expected to have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.
Pagasa warned of possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.
