MANILA - The intermittent rains now being felt in most parts of the country have been explained as the effect of an Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ).
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its 5 p.m. weather bulletin on Wednesday: “[An] Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone [is] affecting Central and Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.”
Cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers and thunderstorms will be experienced in Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon (Region 4-A), Mimaropa (Reg. 4-B), and Bicol region.
“Light to moderate winds blowing from the east to southeast will prevail over Luzon and coming from the south to southeast over the rest of the country. The coastal waters throughout the archipelago will be slight to moderate,” PAGASA said.
