• ITCZ to bring rains over Palawan, Visayas, Mindanao


    The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) on Saturday said that most parts of the country will experience cloudy skies with light rains.

    Pagasa said that except for Palawan, Visayas and Mindanao, Metro Manila and the rest of the Luzon will continue to experience sunny to partly cloudy skies with possible isolated rains in the afternoon or evening due to localized thunderstorms.

    It added that parts of Northern Luzon including regions of Ilocos, Cordillera, Cagayan Valley and Aurora province will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains due to northeast monsoon or “hangin amihan”.

    Because of the Intertropical Convergence Zone, which is the breeding ground for low pressure areas (LPAs) or potential cyclones, the areas of Palawan, Eastern Visayas and Mindanao are expected to have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms.

    The weather agency also issued a gale warning as strong to gale-force winds associated with northeast monsoon is expected to affect the northern and eastern seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboard of Central Luzon.

    “Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves,” it said. PNA
