Meanwhile, southern Mindanao is forecast to have partly cloudy skies with isolated rains due to the ITCZ, said Pagasa.

“Dalawang major system po ang nakakaapekto sa ating bansa. Makikita nga natin itong northeast monsoon, o hanging amihan na nakakaapekto sa may northern Luzon, habang itong intertropical convergence zone o ITCZ naman ay nakakaapekto sa may southern Mindanao,” said Pagasa weather specialist Obet Badrina.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will also experience isolated rains with partly cloudy skies due to localized thunderstorms, Badrina said. He added that no low pressure areas or tropical cyclones are forecast to enter the Philippine area of responsibility until the weekend.

For areas affected by severe thunderstorms, Pagasa warned of possible landslides or flash floods.

  • Metro Manila — 24 to 33 degrees Celsius
