Good weather seen over PHL-A A +A
Thursday, September 6, 2012
MANILA -- Expect good weather over the country on Thursday, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
Weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) will affect the western section of Visayas and Mindanao that will experience scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms.
An ITCZ is a merge of winds from different directions, which is also a breeding ground for a low pressure area.
Aurelio said Luzon including Metro Manila will experience partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies with passing light to moderate rains mostly in the afternoon or evening because of the localized thunderstorms.
He added there is no weather disturbance spotted near the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
But the weather bureau is monitoring a band of rainclouds over the Pacific Ocean that may intensify into a weather disturbance.
Pagasa said light southeasterly to variable winds will prevail over Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao.
The coastal waters along these areas will be slight except during the thunderstorms.
Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the northeast to northwest with slight to moderate seas. (PNA)
