MANILA-- Metro Manila and other parts of the country will experience rains on Thursday as the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) continues to affect southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, state weather agency Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.
In its 24-hour forecast, PAGASA said cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms will prevail over Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Bicol, Mimaropa, western Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Aurora, Bataan and Zambales.
The rest of the country, on the other hand, will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with rainshowers or thunderstorms, it added.
Meanwhile, moderate to occasionally strong winds will blow from southwest to southeast over the western section of Luzon, and from southeast over extreme northern Luzon.
Coastal waters along these areas will be moderate to occasionally rough.
Light to moderate winds will blow from east to southeast over the rest of Luzon, and from the southwest to southeast over Visayas and Mindanao with slight to moderate seas, PAGASA said.
