PAGASA reported that the ITCZ would bring cloudy weather condition with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over the provinces of Pangasinan, Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino and Aurora.
Occidental Mindoro, Palawan including Kalayaan Islands, Bicol Region, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon are also expected to experience similar weather conditions.

The weather agency also warned the public of possible flash floods and landslides during severe thunderstorms. The weather disturbance might prevail over the next two to three days.
“Ito pong ITCZ, malaki ang tsansa na mag-prevail pa rin o maging dominant weather system sa’tin at least in the next two to three days,” Pagasa weather specialist Loriedin De La Cruz.
Meanwhile, the coastal water condition over Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao would be slight to moderate, according to the weather bureau.
