PAGASA said cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms may prevail over Davao Region, South Cotabato, Sarangani, Sultan Kudarat, Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi, Zamboanga del Sur, and Zamboanga Sibugay due to the ITCZ.

The ITCZ is a region near the equator where winds from the northern and southern hemispheres converge.

PAGASA warned the public of flash floods or landslides that may occur in areas affected by the ITCZ during moderate to heavy rains. 

In Metro Manila and the rest of the country, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms will be felt due to the easterlies, or the warm winds from the Pacific Ocean, and localized thunderstorms. 

PAGASA also warned the public of possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms. 

Meanwhile, based on the PAGASA’s extended weather outlook from April 25 to 27, the actual air temperatures in some key areas will be 26–36°C in Metro Manila, 26-38°C in Tuguegarao City, 26-33°C in Legazpi City, 17–27°C in Baguio City, 27–33°C in Metro Cebu, 27–33°C in Iloilo City, 25–33°C in Tacloban City, 26–34°C in Metro Davao, 26–34°C in Zamboanga City, and 25–33°C in Cagayan de Oro City.
