MANILA -- Scattered rainshowers will prevail over most parts of the archipelago due to a low-pressure area (LPA) and the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), the state weather bureau said Saturday.

The LPA, last spotted at 250 km. east-northeast of Guiuan, eastern Samar, is embedded along the ITCZ, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

The two weather systems will cause cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Bicol, Aurora province, Mimaropa, Visayas, northern Mindanao, Zamboanga Peninsula, Caraga and the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

The rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers, mostly in the afternoon or in the evening.

Meanwhile, light to moderate winds will prevail over the entire archipelago, while coastal waters will be slight to moderate, PAGASA said. (PNA)
