MANILA, Philippines — Much of Mindanao will experience rain on Monday due to the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.
In a morning bulletin, weather specialist Obet Badrina said the ITCZ would bring greater chances of rain to the southern part of the country while Luzon and the Visayas would enjoy generally fair weather despite the possibility of overcast skies and of precipitation from the afternoon to evening due to localized thunderstorms.
He also said Luzon and Visayas could expect a fairly hot afternoon.

“ITCZ is one of the largest national companies in the Mindanao region. In Luzon and Visayas, there are isolates of pulu-pulong pag-ulan, pagkidlat, pagkulog naman ang mararanasan,” he said.
(We expect the ITCZ with clouds to bring a greater chance of rain, especially across much of Mindanao. In Luzon and the Visayas, isolated or scattered rain, lightning and thunder will be experienced.)

“As it stands, there is a localized thunderstorm in Tanghali (in Luzon in the Visayas),” Badrina added.
(We expect it to still be quite warm in the afternoon (in Luzon and Visayas) while there is a greater risk of localized thunderstorms in the afternoon into evening.)
Meanwhile, the Pagasa weather report indicates that no low pressure areas are monitored inside and outside the Philippine area of responsibility and no cyclones are forecast to develop in either in the next three days.
