It’s summer, err, dry season – Pagasa

/ 02:10 PM April 10, 2018

Expect warmer and sunny days ahead as the state weather bureau declared the onset of dry season on Tuesday.

Weather forecasters don’t call it ‘summer,’ as technically there are only two seasons in the Philippines — wet and dry.

The dry season signals the end of the northeast monsoon, or the cool winds blowing from Siberia. The dominant weather systems during the dry season are the easterlies and the ridge of high pressure area.


Pagasa administrator Vicente Malano, in a statement, cited the increase of temperature in many parts of the country.

“Expected day-to-day weather will become warmer and drier in most parts of the country due to the dominance of the ridge of High Pressure Area and the easterlies,” he said.     /muf
