Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms are expected over Metro Manila and the rest of the country, PAGASA said Wednesday.
In its 24-hour forecast, the agency said this is caused by warm winds from the Pacific Ocean called the easterlies.
PAGASA warned affected residents against possible flash floods or landslides during severe thunderstorms.
Meanwhile, the synoptic station at the Science Garden, Diliman, Quezon City recorded a minimum temperature of 24.6°C at 6 a.m. and a maximum temperature of 32.9°C at 1:55 p.m.
