PAGASA Releases Latest Weather Update for Wednesday (May 11)

The state weather bureau PAGASA reported that the intertropical convergence zone will bring heavy rains over Palawan and Mindanao.

On Wednesday (May 11, 2022), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration released the latest weather update in the country. The intertropical convergence zone will affect the country’s weather condition.

PAGASA reported that the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) will be affecting Mindanao while the Easterlies will be affecting the rest of the country. Possible flash floods or landslides are expected due to moderate to at times heavy rains.


The Intertropical Convergence Zone will bring cloudy weather condition with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Palawan including Kalayaan Islands as well as Mindanao.

“Sa bahagi ng Palawan ay patuloy nga pong makakaranas ‘yung mga kababayan po natin diyan ng mga kalat-kalat na pag-ulan, pagkulog at pagkidlat dulot po ‘yan ng ITCZ,” Pagasa weather specialist Grace Castañeda said.

Partly cloudy to cloudy weather condition with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms are expected over Bicol Region, Northern Samar, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon. The Easterlies/localized thunderstorms will also bring similar weather condition over the Visayas and Occidental Mindoro.


Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have the same weather condition. Possible flash floods or landslides are expected during severe thunderstorms. However, the remaining parts of the country will have a fair weather condition due to the easterlies.

Meanwhile, the coastal water condition over Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will be slight to moderate.
