Rain expected in parts of Luzon, Visayas on June 27 due to ITCZ
MANILA, Philippines – The intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) will again affect parts of Luzon and the Visayas on Wednesday, June 27.
The ITCZ is a belt near the equator where the trade winds of the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere meet, usually causing low pressure areas (LPAs) or thunderstorms. (READ: FAST FACTS: Tropical cyclones, rainfall advisories)
