MANILA, Philippines — There is a low chance that tropical cyclones will enter the Philippine area of responsibility for the whole week, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Wednesday.

“Magandang balita po, dahil for this week, mababa ang chance na magkaroon tayo ng panibagong bagyo,” said Pagasa weather specialist Benison Estareja in a 5 p.m. live-streamed weather update.

(This is good news because, for this week, there is a low chance that we will experience new tropical cyclones.)

However, the state weather specialist warned that Wednesday night will be cloudy as scattered rain showers are likely over some Mindanao areas due to the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), which occurs due to the wind from the northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere.

Also this Wednesday night, Estareja said overcast skies and light rains may be expected over Cagayan Valley and the Cordillera Administrative Region as the northeast monsoon or amihan still prevails over Luzon, adding that partly cloudy skies and light rains will likewise occur in Ilocos Region, Central Luzon, Metro Manila, and Calabarzon.

Estareja further said the Visayas will experience cloudy skies with chances of localized thunderstorms that will last from one to two hours Wednesday night.
