MANILA, Philippines—Thunderstorm rains in the afternoon may continue until Saturday, the weather bureau said.

Weather forecaster Meno Mendoza said the pattern of isolated thunderstorms with heavy rains would continue to persist even as an oncoming typhoon is so far away that it would not affect any part of the Philippine landmass.

“These rains, which usually fall over Metro Manila in the afternoon, would continue but further days would experience fair weather,” Mendoza said.

He added that the country would experience fairer weather on Sunday and Monday with light rains the only one to spoil the sunshine.
