The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Thursday said that Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) will bring cloudy skies with rains over Mindanao.
PAGASA weather forecaster Shaira Nonot said the ITCZ affecting Mindanao, which is the thick clouds coming from the south of Asia, is considered a breeding ground for low-pressure areas (LPAs) or potential cyclones.
Until Friday, Nonot said the presence of ITCZ will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms over Caraga and Davao regions.
She added fair weather with partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms will prevail the rest of the country including Metro Manila.
She said there has been no weather disturbance monitored near the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) that may affect the country within the next two to three days.
In its advisory, PAGASA said moderate to strong winds blowing from the northeast will prevail over extreme Northern Luzon and the eastern section of Luzon and Visayas.
The coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough.
Winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast to east over the rest of Luzon and Visayas and from the southwest to west will prevail over Mindanao with slight to moderate seas.
The state weather bureau did not issue a gale warning as the fisherfolk are safe to venture into the sea. PNA
