MANILA, Philippines – Tuguegarao City, capital of Cagayan province, has recorded the hottest temperature in the Philippines, the state weather bureau said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the city’s temperature hit 39 degrees Celsius which was recorded 2:00 p.m. Friday.


Pagasa said this was the third hottest temperature recorded in Philippine history after the 40.4 degrees Celsius in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija on May 11, 2012 and the 42.2 degrees Celsius also in Tuguegarao City on  May 11, 1969.

It added that light to moderate winds blowing from the east to northeast would prevail over Luzon and Visayas and coming from the northeast over Mindanao.

The coastal waters throughout the archipelago would be slight to moderate, it said.
