MANILA – Most parts of the country will experience isolated rain showers due to the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and localized thunderstorms, the weather bureau said Wednesday.

In its 4 a.m. bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the northeast monsoon will continue to bring rains over Cagayan Valley and Aurora and may cause flash floods or landslides during moderate to heavy rains.

Light rains will also dampen the Ilocos and Cordillera regions.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers.

PAGASA also forecast moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough seas over Luzon.

Rough to very rough seas are expected over the northern, eastern, and western seaboards of northern Luzon, and the eastern seaboards of central and southern Luzon.

PAGASA advised fishing boats and other small sea vessels not to venture into the sea, and larger sea vessels have been alerted against big waves.

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