In an interview with Panahon TV, PAGASA Weather Forecaster Robert Badrina said no weather disturbance is expected to develop within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) in the next three days. However, the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) continues to affect Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
The ITCZ is the boundary of winds coming from the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Converging winds form convective clouds, dumping rains in the affected areas.
This weather system will bring cloudy skies with light to moderate rains in Visayas, MIMAROPA (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan), Bicol Region, Zamboanga Peninsula and the province of Dinagat. Residents of these areas are also alerted against possible heavy rains, gusty winds and lightning when thunderstorms occur.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country can expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains with chances of thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening. Thunderstorms usually persist for about 1 to 2 hours.
Meanwhile, no gale warning was issued as coastal waters throughout the archipelago remain slight to moderate.
