Rains expected in southern PH on Thursday

MANILA The Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) will bring rains to the southern part of the country, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

In its 4 p.m. weather bulletin effective for 24 hours, PAGASA said Mindanao and the provinces of southern Leyte and Bicol would experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the ITCZ that is considered a breeding ground for typhoons. The state-run weather bureau also cautioned of possible flooding and landslides due to light to moderate to occasional heavy rains.

Metro Manila and the other parts of the country will also have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers caused by local thunderstorms.

Extreme northern Luzon is forecast to have moderate to rough coastal waters pushed by moderate to strong winds, while central Luzon and the rest of northern Luzon is expected to have slight to moderate coastal waters due to light to moderate winds.

Other areas, meanwhile, will have slight to moderate coastal waters brought by light to moderate winds. (PNA)
