The Visayas, Bicol Region and Mimaropa will experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to the LPA and ITCZ, Clauren said.

The ITCZ will also bring partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Mindanao.

Meanwhile, the northeast monsoon or amihan will bring cloudy skies with light rains over Cagayan Valley and Cordillera Administrative Region
