MANILA, Philippines — State weather bureau PAGASA forecasts scattered rains over Metro Manila and other areas due to the combined effects of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and brewing low pressure area (LPA) south of the country.
Aside from Metro Manila, scattered rains will also prevail over the areas of areas in Central Luzon, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Western Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Bangsamoro, SOCCSKSARGEN, Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Benguet, Ifugao, La Union, Pangasinan, and Camarines Norte.
This, as PAGASA monitors the LPA specifically located at 90 kilometers east southeast of Romblon, Romblon, based on PAGASA’s 4:00AM forecast.
The LPA, embedded in the ITCZ generally affects Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
Meanwhile, the rest of the country will have isolated rains or thunderstorms due to the impact of ITCZ combined with localized thunderstorms.
These weather conditions are likely to cause flash floods or landslides due to moderate to at times heavy rains or severe thunderstorms.
Thus, residents in areas prone to these hazards are advised to take precautionary measures for possible danger.
