Scattered rains and thunderstorms brought floods to parts of Metro Manila and across the country the past weeks – an indication of the dry season’s end and the onset of the rainy season.
The rains are caused by various weather conditions:
- A frontal system or boundary between air masses that drenched and will continue to prevail over large parts of the country
- The southwesterly surface wind flow felt over Region 4A and Western Visayas and,
- localized thunderstorms that bring cloudy skies with isolated rain showers and thunderstorms.
