The intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), which is a breeding ground for potential low pressure area and tropical cyclone, will prevail over Mindanao this Wednesday.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Mindanao will experience cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms due to the ITCZ.
Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon or habagat will bring cloudy skies and scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Palawan province.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country may experience warm and humid mornings due to the temporary weakening of the habagat. Localized thunderstorms may bring isolated rain showers, especially in the late afternoon or evening.
PAGASA warned that rains, especially during severe thunderstorms, could trigger possible flash floods or landslides over low-lying and mountainous areas in the archipelago.
It has not issued a gale warning allowing fisherfolk and seafarers to sail.
Moderate to rough seas will prevail over the western part of Luzon, while slight to moderate seas will prevail over the rest of the country.
PAGASA does not see the formation or entry of a tropical cyclone inside the country in the next few days.
