Here’s a bit of good news for anyone planning to spend the holidays up in the Philippines’ summer capital: Baguio City’s temperature is dropping to cooler and cooler levels.
Last December 9, Monday it went down to a nice and cold 11.8 degrees Celsius at 6 a.m. — the coldest recorded temperature so far in December. Leticia Dispo, weather specialist of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, shares that even colder weather can be expected to come in soon.
She explains that the temperature will only further drop in the coming weeks since the city’s coldest mornings typically occur between the months of January and February. Case in point is the coldest recorded morning of 2019 which dropped to 9.8 degrees Celsius and happened last January 28.
This cold spell which Baguio usually experiences is caused by the northeast monsoon which begins in October and is locally referred to as “hanging amihan“.
