Pagasa: Rain showers, cloudy skies due in most parts of PH
MANILA, Philippines — Cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms will prevail in the Visayas, Mindanao, Bicol region, and Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan) on Monday due to the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
Metro Manila and the rest of the country meantime will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms, Pagasa said in its 4 a.m. weather update.
“Ang ating tinatawag na Intertropical Convergence Zone, ito po ‘yung lugar kung saan nagsasalubong ang hangin na nagmumula po sa northern at southern hemisphere na nagdudulot ng kaulapan na nagdadala ng pag-ulan sa apektadong lugar,” Pagasa weather specialist Meno Mendoza said.
(The intertropical convergence zone is the area where the winds coming from the northern and southern hemisphere converge which causes cloudy skies and rain in affected areas.)
The state weather bureau added that no weather disturbance is expected to affect the country in the next two to three days.
