Cold weather is here -- PAGASA

MANILA, Philippines?Time to take out your jackets and warm clothing, the cold weather is here.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration on Wednesday said chilly temperatures associated with the Christmas holiday season has arrived.

PAGASA?s Nathaniel Cruz said the surge of the northeast winds will bring colder temperatures mostly to Luzon and parts of the Visayas.

?This is really just the beginning of the cold season,? Cruz said.

The cold winds usually build up and blow into the country in cycles, he said.

?It will blow, then weaken, then build up and blow again. That is the likely pattern we will see,? said Cruz.

The northeast winds come from the northern hemisphere where it is already winter and can be expected to affect the country until February, with the coldest periods in the first two months of the year.

Cruz said the coldest part of the day will be the early morning between 4 and 5 a.m. just before sunrise. It could get warmer around noon and the afternoon, but not by much as there is less humidity during the cold months.

?It won?t be as warm or hot as compared to other months. Even when there is sunlight, if the humidity is low, we feel cooler,? he said.

PAGASA expects temperatures in Metro Manila to range between 23 to 24 degrees Celsius. Baguio City could see temperatures drop to as low as 16 degrees.

PAGASA?s Ludy Alviar said temperatures fell 24 degrees early on Wednesday. ?That?s not too cold yet. Usually, we hit around 20 degrees,? she said.
