MANILA – The Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) will bring cloudy skies and scattered rain showers over Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Sunday.

In its 5 a.m. weather bulletin, the weather bureau said Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, and Palawan will have cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to ITCZ.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to ITCZ or localized thunderstorms.

Residents in affected areas are warned against possible flash floods or landslides due to moderate to at times heavy rains.

The country will experience light to moderate winds with slight to moderate coastal waters.

Meanwhile, PAGASA said it is still monitoring a typhoon with international name “Mindulle” outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

“Mindulle” is forecast to move generally north northwestward until Tuesday and may enter the PAR on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Once inside the PAR, the domestic name “Lannie” will be assigned to this tropical cyclone.

“This typhoon is unlikely to directly affect the weather condition of the country throughout the forecast period. However, it may cause moderate to rough seas over the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon beginning on Monday primarily due to swells,” PAGASA said.

The minimum temperature is 24.2 °C and the maximum temperature is 32.4 °C. (PNA)
