PAGASA: ITCZ AFFECTING EASTERN VISAYAS, PARTS OF MINDANAO



The state weather bureau PAGASA said localized thunderstorm will cause partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.

Due to this, PAGASA warned the public of possible flash floods or landslides due to scattered light to moderate to at times heavy rains.

Meanwhile Eastern Visayas and parts of Mindanao are affected by the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) bringing over cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorm.

With this, PAGASA said floodings and landslides are possible.

Study shows ITCZ appears as a band of clouds, usually thunderstorms. It is the area encircling Earth near the equator, where the northeast and southern trade winds converge.
