Rain in parts of Luzon on Monday due to ITCZ
MANILA, Philippines – Expect rain in Southern Luzon on Monday, October 2, due to the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ).
In a bulletin issued 4 pm on Sunday, October 1, state weather bureau PAGASA said Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, and Mimaropa will have light to moderate with occasionally heavy rain on Monday. There could also be strong winds and flooding, warned PAGASA.
