You may have noticed these past few days a sudden drop in temperature.
This cold weather even prompts people to compare it to that of Baguio’s although it is nothing near that (the temperature up north ranges somewhere between 10 degrees Celsius to 22 degrees Celsius to an extreme of 9 to 10 degrees Celsius in Banawe, Ifugao.)
According to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), the cold weather is brought about by the prevalence of northeast monsoon (amihan).
Pagasa said the northeast monsoon, or amihan, will continue to affect the country’s weather conditions in the next few days,
Metro Manila, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Aurora, Calabarzon, and Bicol Region will experience cloudy skies with light rain, while the rest of the country will see partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rain.
The cold wind brought by amihan will continue to be felt in most parts of the country.
At 5:40 a. m., the temperature in Metro Manila was at 21.4 degrees Celsius, while in Baguio City, it dropped to 10.8 degrees at 6 a. m..
