MANILA, Philippines — The prevailing southwesterly surface wind flow will still bring rain over Metro Manila, as well as several areas in the western section of Luzon, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

According to Pagasa weather specialist Obet Badrina, scattered rain showers and overcast skies could be expected over Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, Bataan, Zambales, Pampanga, Bulacan, and Calabarzon in the next 24 hours.

“Sa mga lugar na binanggit ay laging magdala ng pananggalang sa ulan dahil inaasahan natin ang mga pagulan bukas sa araw ng Huwebes,” Badrina said in a weather report on Wednesday afternoon.

(In the areas mentioned, always bring protection against rain as we expect rain showers tomorrow, Thursday.)
