ITCZ to bring rains over Visayas, Mindanao

-A A +A

Thursday, August 21, 2014


MANILA -- Parts of Mindanao and Visayas will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rains on Thursday due to Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) affecting these areas, the state weather bureau said.

ITCZ is the thick clouds coming from the south of Asia and a breeding ground for low-pressure areas (LPAs) or potential cyclones.

The models of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) indicate the ITCZ is affecting Visayas.

In its weather bulletin, Pagasa said Visayas, the regions of Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, Bicol and the provinces of Palawan, Mindoro and Davao will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, the rest of the country, including Metro Manila, will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.

Pagasa added that light to moderate winds blowing from the northeast to north will prevail over Luzon and Western Visayas.

The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate. (PNA/Sunnex)
