The timing and length of the wet season is largely governed by the position of the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone
In the case of Atlantic hurricanes, one such area within which these conditions are found is the so-called Intercontinental Tropical Convergence Zone
, which provides an ideal breeding ground.
This Tuesday, the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone
or ITCZ continues to be the prevailing weather system over Visayas and Mindanao.
PAGASA forecaster Chris Perez said the Visayas and Mindanao will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with light to moderate rains passing by due to the effects of the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone
(ITCZ) until tomorrow.
Today, cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms will prevail over Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan, Visayas and Mindanao due to the combined effects of the LPA inside the PAR and the inter tropical convergence zone
(ITCZ) across Visayas.
