MANILA – Some areas in the country will experience rains caused by the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) and the easterlies, the weather bureau said Tuesday.

The ITCZ will cause scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over the Zamboanga Peninsula and the provinces of Palawan, Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi.

The same weather condition will prevail over Bicol Region, Cagayan, Isabela, Aurora, and Quezon due to the easterlies, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

These areas may possibly experience flash floods or landslides due to moderate to at times heavy rains, according to PAGASA.

The rest of the country will have isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.

Moderate winds and moderate seas will prevail over extreme Northern Luzon.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate with slight to moderate seas, PAGASA said. (PNA)
