Cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms may affect Palawan, Eastern and Central Visayas, and Mindanao in the next 24 hours due to the prevalence of the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ), a rain-inducing weather system containing circulations or low pressure systems.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Wednesday afternoon, July 7, warned against possible flash floods or landslides during moderate to at times heavy rains.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have “fair” weather conditions due to partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.

Residents in these areas, however, are still advised to take precautions against possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.

PAGASA said that no gale warning is in place on Wednesday as slight to moderate sea conditions may prevail across the country.

While no gale warning is in effect, PAGASA still advised seafarers and fisherfolk to remain alert as sea conditions may become rough during severe offshore thunderstorms.
