Rains continue to prevail across PH

MOST areas in the country will continue to experience rains due to the prevailing southwest monsoon, the weather bureau said Wednesday.

This will bring scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Palawan and Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its 4 a.m. bulletin.

Moderate to heavy rains in those areas could result in flash floods and landslides.

The southwest monsoon will also cause isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Metro Manila, Western Visayas, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, and the rest of Mimaropa.

PAGASA forecaster Aldczar Aurelio said the southwest monsoon will continue to prevail until Friday, so a large part of the country will continue to experience scattered rains and thunderstorms in the next three days.

No weather disturbance is expected to develop or affect the country for the next three days, he added.

The rest of the country will continue to experience isolated rain showers due to localized thunderstorms.

PAGASA said severe thunderstorms could also result in flash floods or landslides.

Meanwhile, light to moderate winds and slight to moderate seas will prevail across the archipelago. (PNA)
