The National Capital Region is expected to experience cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms due to the monsoon through, PAGASA announced Wednesday afternoon.
In its 24-hour forecast, the weather agency said the rest of Luzon, Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi will also experience similar weather conditions.
Affected residents were warned against possible flash floods or landslides due to scattered moderate to, at times, heavy rains.
PAGASA said the monsoon trough may also bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms over the rest of Mindanao.
Flash floods and landslides are also possible.
Meanwhile, the synoptic station at the Science Garden, Diliman, Quezon City recorded a minimum temperature of 25.2°C at 5 a.m. and a maximum temperature of 29°C at 2 p.m.
According to the American Meteorological Society online glossary, a “monsoon trough” is “the line in a weather map showing the locations of relatively minimum sea level pressure in a monsoon region.” Heavy monsoon rains are associated with monsoon troughs as “most of the active transient disturbances producing the monsoon rain develop and move along the monsoon trough region.”—Joahna Lei Casilao/LDF, GMA News
