PAGASA Says ITCZ to Affect PH Weather Condition
The state weather bureau PAGASA reported that the Intertropical Convergence Zone would bring cloudy to rainy conditions over some parts of the country.
On Thursday (September 23, 2021), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. The Intertropical Convergence Zone would continue to affect the country’s weather condition.
PAGASA reported that the ITCZ would affect the weather condition over Palawan, Visayas, and Mindanao.
The ITCZ would bring cloudy weather condition with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Western Visayas and Palawan including Kalayaan Islands. Possible flash floods or landslides due to severe thunderstorms are expected.
The localized thunderstorms and ITCZ would bring partly cloudy to cloudy condition with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms over the Bicol Region, Northern Samar, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, rest of Visayas and Occidental Mindoro.
Metro Manila and the rest of the country would experience similar weather conditions. Possible flash floods or landslides are expected during severe thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, the surrounding sea condition over Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao would be slight to moderate due to the light to moderate wind speed moving in the northeast to east and northwest direction, according to the weather bureau.
PAGASA also reported that there is 70 to 80 percent chance that La Niña will form in October and would last until the first quarter of 2022, which would bring above normal rainfall conditions in most of the country.
National Capital Region, Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, Eastern Visayas, Caraga, parts of Cagayan Valley, and Western/Central Visayas will have more rainfall.
