The intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), a rain-inducing weather system, will continue to prevail over Palawan, Visayas and Mindanao this Monday.
According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the ITCZ, which is a breeding ground for potential low pressure area and tropical cyclone, will bring cloudy skies with scattered rain showers or thunderstorms over Palawan and the entire Visayas and Mindanao.
Meanwhile, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers will persist over Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon due to localized thunderstorms.
PAGASA warned that rains, especially during severe thunderstorms, could trigger possible flash floods or landslides over low-lying and mountainous areas in the entire archipelago.
Meanwhile, PAGASA has not issued a gale warning thus fisherfolk and seafarers are safe to sail.
Slight to moderate seas will prevail over the entire country.
While it has been raining in many parts of the country, Metro Manila on Sunday afternoon recorded a high air temperature at 36.4 degrees Celsius around 3:50 p.m.
Last April 21, PAGASA recorded the highest air temperature so far this year at 36.6 degrees Celsius air temperature at the Science Garden monitoring station in Quezon City.
