Rain is expected over parts of Ilocos and Mimaropa and over Visayas and Mindanao on Sunday, the eve of President Benigno Aquino III’s State of the Nation Address, state weather forecasters said.

In its 5 a.m. bulletin, PAGASA said the rain is partly due to the inter-tropical convergence zone across Mindanao.

“Visayas and Mindanao and the regions of Ilocos and Mimaropa will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rain showers and thunderstorms,” it said.

PAGASA said Metro Manila and the rest of the Luzon will be “partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms.”

Earlier, PAGASA had said the weather may improve during the weekend following the exit of Tropical Storm Isang (Cimaron).

Meanwhile, PAGASA said moderate to strong winds from the southwest to southeast will prevail over the western section of Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the southwest to southeast with slight to moderate seas.

Rain over NCR Monday

However, PAGASA’s extended outlook indicated there may be rain showers and thunderstorms over Metro Manila on Monday.

Aquino is to deliver his SONA at the Batasan Complex before a joint session of Congress Monday afternoon.

Several groups are expected to hold mass actions near the venue.  — ELR, GMA News
