Rainy season

Rainy Season

The rainy season, which is probably the most hated Philippine weather vary from monsoon rains, typhoons, inter tropical convergence zones and storms.

The rainy season in Philippines is a pesky time of the year because this season especially the monsoon rains cause a lot of floods and flash floods in the city and landslides in the mountainous area of the country. • Rainy weather in the Philippines starts from June to October but sometimes extends up to November and slightly in December.

The usual cold weather in November and December has been replaced by showers and sometimes typhoons in November and December.

Waters in the rivers like the Pasig river, in esteros and in lakes like the Laguna de bay rise at a very fast rate and flood the nearyby towns and cities particularly the low lying areas of Metro Manila like Marikina, Pasig, Manila, Taytay, Cainta to name a few.

Excessive water in the dams like the La Mesa dam during the rainy weather also force the dam authorities to release water and cause havoc and more high level flood even in nearby provinces of Metro Manila like Bulacan. Quezon city suffers a lot from the release of waters from the dams.

TRAVEL TIP:
Do not plan your Philippine travel in September because it is the month when most destructive typhoons hit the country.

Typhoons can reach a maximum strength of 200-250 kilometers per hour and could wreck a lot of damage particularly on the eastern side of the Philippines and up to northern Luzon.

Summer time

Summer Time

Summer in the Philippines starts in March which is the beginning of school vacation and just the time when you and your friends can trek to the white beaches to cool your bodies and enjoy the heat of the sun. When summer ends in May, you must have had your body all tanned from the beach vacation.

The summer heat in the Philippine weather reaches a maximum temperature of 38 degrees and a low of 33 degrees. Quite hot indeed but bearable when compared with other parts of the worlds like in the Middle East.

But in Baguio City in the north of Luzon, summer temperature varies from 24 to at most 28 degrees which is still cold for the Filipinos.

The rest of the Philippines have the same temperature of summer heat. The summer season ends in June and followed by the rainy season.

Cold months

The cold weather in the Philippines only lasts for two months in January and December and is not considered too cold as compared with other countries in Europe or in the north America.

Temperatures in January and February range from 22 to 32 degrees and rarely hit 18 to 21 degrees. This cold weather is the most preferred season by many since it relieves the country from floods as wall as the scorching heat at the same time.
