No storm but rains still expected, Pagasa says

There is no tropical cyclone in the country, but it would still be wise to carry your umbrellas.

This, as the state weather bureau forecast light to moderate rains and thunderstorms in most of the country.

"As of today, there is no tropical cyclone existing within the Philippine Area of Responsibility," Pagasa said Wednesday.

It noted however that an intertropical convergence zone is affecting Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao throughout the day.

"Metro Manila, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, Visayas and Mindanao will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms," Pagasa said.

A thunderstorm has been monitored over Metro Manila, Quezon, Laguna, Cavite, Pampanga, Rizal, Bulacan and portions of Batangas early Wednesday.

"All are advised to take precautionary measures against heavy rains, strong winds, lightning and possible flashfloods," a Pagasa advisory said.

Isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms are also expected in the afternoon or in the evening in the rest of Luzon.
