The cold spell currently affecting the Philippines made itself even more apparent this first day of February. Baguio City and Metro Manila residents alike experienced the coldest day of the amihan season so far.
“Amihan” refers to the northeast monsoon which occurs from late October to early March, reaching its height during February.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) recorded Baguio City’s temperature to be 10.2° Celsius on February 1 at around 7 am. This is a significant drop from Baguio’s 11.2 degrees Celsius minimum temperature.
PAGASA weather observer Mel Duque also announced Metro Manila’s lowest temperature of the season at 18.5 degrees Celsius this February 1 at around 6 am.
According to weather specialist Meno Mendoza we can expect the same cool temperatures to continue in Metro Manila and Baguio City for the next few days.
