by Malou Talosig-Bartolome

It’s Sunday, fun day, family day. And according to state weather forecaster Pagasa, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies. There will be sporadic rain showers or thunderstorms.

What’s causing the localized thunderstorms?

ITCZ or the inter-tropical convergence zone is the band of clouds consisting of showers, with occasional thunderstorms, that encircles the globe near the equator. The seasonal shifts in the location of the ITCZ affects rainfall in many countries near the equator including the Philippines.

What’s the impact of ITCZ?

Possible flash floods or landslides may threaten affected areas during severe thunderstorms.

A thunderstorm advisory was issued in the following Mindanao provinces around 540 am today — Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-tawi, Sarangani, Davao Occidental and South Cotabato.

Also around 1:55am, Pagasa also issued an advisory of moderate to occasionally heavy rain showers with lightning and strong winds in the towns of Lallo and Santa Teresita in Cagayan, and Maconacon in Isabela.
