ITCZ to bring rain, thunderstorms over Mimaropa, W. Visayas, Mindanao
MANILA, Philippines — The Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) will continue to bring rain and cloudy skies over the majority of the country particularly Mimaropa, Western Visayas, and the entire Mindanao on Wednesday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
“‘Yung nalalabing bahagi naman ng Luzon ay generally fair ang panahon, sisilip ang araw kasama na diyan sa Metro Manila, may tiyansa lang ng pagulan bandang hapon hanggang sa gabi pero pulo pulo lamang ‘yan,” Pagasa weather specialist Joey Figuracion said Tuesday.
(The rest of Luzon will have generally fair weather, including Metro Manila; only isolated rain is expected during the afternoon until evening.)
On the other hand, only isolated thunderstorms are forecast in the Central and Eastern Visayas, while higher chances of scattered rain and thunderstorm formations are expected in Western Visayas and the entire Mindanao.
Meanwhile, Figuracion said a low pressure area was spotted 175 kilometers west northwest of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan, but it is forecast to move further away from the country.
No tropical cyclones are expected to form within the Philippine Area of Responsibility in the next two to three days, said Figuracion.
Forecast temperature range in key cities/areas according to Pagasa:
Metro Manila: 25 to 32 degrees Celsius
Baguio City: 16 to 25 degrees Celsius
Laoag City: 25 to 33 degrees Celsius
Tuguegarao: 25 to 34 degrees Celsius
Legazpi City: 25 to 33 degrees Celsius
