MANILA – Fair weather with isolated rain showers will continue to prevail across the country on Wednesday, the weather bureau said.

The easterlies continue to prevail over the eastern section of the Visayas and Mindanao, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather forecaster Obet Badrina said.

Localized thunderstorms will be experienced over parts of these islands, he said, adding that generally fair weather will prevail over most of Luzon, although localized thunderstorms are still likely in the afternoon or evening.

PAGASA said flash floods or landslides are possible during severe thunderstorms.

Badrina said no low-pressure area was monitored inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility, and that the country has a slim chance of having a tropical cyclone until Friday.

Moderate to strong winds and moderate to rough seas continue to prevail over extreme Northern Luzon.

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