Due to LPA, the entire Visayas will have cloudy skies with sporadic showers and thunderstorms.

Bakit itong habagat ay umaabot lamang dito sa kanlurang bahagi ng Luzon ay dahil sa high pressure area na nandito sa East Philippine Sea. Siya yong nagiging hadlang o yong harang kaya itong habagat ay umaabot lamang hanggang sa kanlurang bahagi ng Luzon,” he said.
