MANILA, Philippines — Generally fair weather with chances of slightly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms may be expected in most areas of the country on Thursday, the state weather agency said.

In an early morning advisory, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio said these clouds and rain will be brought by localized thunderstorms.


He advised residents to stay alert because flash floods or landslides may happen in low-lying areas during severe thunderstorms.

Aurelio likewise said the ridge of the high-pressure area and easterlies, or warm winds blowing from the Pacific Ocean, will continue to affect the country.

“Ngayong araw, inaasahan pa rin natin na magiging maganda at maaliwalas ang panahon sa bansa. Asahan pa rin ang maalinsangan na panahon,” Aurelio said.

(Today, we still expect nice and clear weather in the country. Still anticipate humid weather.)
