Mixture of sunny, rainy weather: Pagasa


Except in Mindanao, most parts of the country will have mixture of sunny and rainy weather due to localized thunderstorms, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Saturday.

In its advisory, PAGASA said an intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) is affecting Mindanao while aasterlies have an effect on the eastern sections of Luzon and Visayas.

The weather agency said that easterlies or warm winds from the east, were thunderstorm clouds or the cumulonimbus clouds are easily formed, will affect the rest of the country including Metro Manila which will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly over the eastern sections.

Because of the ITCZ, which is the breeding ground for low pressure areas (LPAs) or potential cyclones, the Davao Region and Caraga will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms.

It added that moderate to strong winds blowing from the east to southeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas and the coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to rough. PNA
