Many parts of the country will experience cloudy skies with occasional rains on Monday due to Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) — the prevailing weather system affecting the country — according to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
The ITCZ affecting Visayas and Mindanao, is the thick clouds coming from the south of Asia and considered a breeding ground for low-pressure areas (LPAs) or potential cyclones.
On Monday forecast, PAGASA said the presence of ITCZ will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms over Western Visayas, CARAGA, Soccsksargen and Davao regions.
Fair weather or partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms will prevail over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.
It added light to moderate winds blowing from the northeast to northwest will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and coming from the southwest to west over Mindanao. The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate. PNA
