The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) forecasts partly cloudy to overcast skies with chances of isolated or scattered rain showers across most of the Philippines. This weather pattern is attributed to the southwest monsoon, locally known as “habagat.”

Weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio confirmed that no storm is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) until at least the weekend.

Habagat, characterized by warm, moist winds blowing from the southwest, typically brings rain to the western parts of the country between May and September. Currently, it’s causing cloudy skies and scattered rain showers with thunderstorms over Palawan and Mindanao. Metro Manila and other Luzon provinces, including Cavite, Laguna, and Batangas, are also experiencing the effects of this weather system.

Western Visayas, Zambales, Bataan, and the rest of Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, and Palawan) can expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated downpours or thunderstorms.

Looking ahead to the next 24 hours, Pagasa predicts similar weather conditions for the rest of the country, with localized thunderstorms potentially contributing to rainfall.
