MANILA, Philippines—Metro Manila experienced its hottest temperature yet this year Friday afternoon, the state weather bureau said.

The new record beat Tuesday afternoon’s record of 36.1 degrees Celsius. On Wednesday afternoon, Metro Manila temperature was at 35.9 degrees Celsius.


Warm weather is forecast for three to five days due to a high pressure area across Luzon, Dadivas said.
