Expect light rains over Mindanao due to the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) affecting Southern Mindanao, the State weather bureau said on Wednesday.
In an interview, PAGASA weather forecaster Jori Loiz said that Mindanao and Palawan will be spared from warm weather as these areas will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms.
Loiz said that fair weather will continue in most parts of the country because of the Ridge of High Pressure Area (HPA) extending across Luzon.
He explained that Luzon was experiencing a heat surge because of the ridge of a high pressure area which brings dry and warm winds.
Loiz said that easterlies or warm winds from the east are also affecting the Visayas.
He also said that the country will continue to be storm free in the next three days as no weather disturbance is seen near the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
For Wednesday forecast, Loiz said that Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.
Metro Manila temperature will be range to 25-36 degrees Celsius for Wednesday.
In its advisory, PAGASA said that light to moderate winds blowing from the east to southeast will prevail throughout the archipelago and the coastal waters will be slight to moderate. PNA
