After soaking portions of Mindanao these past days, the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) has oscillated southward, reducing its effects on the region.
While it has been warm and humid in Luzon and Visayas since last week, the ITCZ, known as the breeding ground of Low Pressure Areas (LPA), brought rains in several areas in Mindanao. Landslides have transpired in Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte and Brgy. Napangan in Don Victoriano, Misamis Occidental because of heavy rains last Sunday.

Because of the prevailing Easterlies or warm and humid air from the Pacific Ocean, Mindanao weather is expected to improve. This Tuesday, cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms will be experienced in the Davao Region. In Luzon, Visayas and the rest of Mindanao, generally fair weather will prevail except for isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.
Temperatures are still expected to soar with the highest heat index possible in Tuguegarao.
