A trough of a low pressure area (LPA) affecting the eastern section of Mindanao and the easterlies will bring cloudy skies with isolated rain showers in some parts of the country, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Monday.

In its 24-hour weather report, the state weather bureau said Mindanao will experience scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the trough of an LPA.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will also be partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.

Temperatures will sizzle as expected since it is the onset of the dry season. For today, the highest temperature is expected in Tuguegarao City at 37 degrees Celsius and Metro Manila, with a high of 34 degrees Celsius. Metro Cebu will have a high of 32 degrees Celsius and Metro Davao, with 28 degrees Celsius.
