PAGASA: Wind convergence to bring rain over parts of PHL


While there is no tropical cyclone expected for Sunday, scattered rain showers and thunderstorms may still fall over parts of the country, state weather forecasters said.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said this is due to an inter-tropical convergence zone (ITCZ) affecting Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

"Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rains howers and thunderstorms. The rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms," PAGASA said in its 5 a.m. bulletin.

PAGASA said Metro Manila will be among the areas that may experience mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms.

The forecast temperature range in Metro Manila will be between 24 and 32 degrees Celsius, it added.

Only last Tuesday, Metro Manila experienced heavy rain and floods after a low-pressure area crossed Luzon.

Meanwhile, PAGASA said light to moderate winds blowing from the southwest to south will prevail over Palawan and Mindanao and coming from south to southeast over the rest of the country on Sunday.

The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate, it added.
