Philippines Climate & Weather
Philippines Climate and Weather
The Philippines has a tropical marine climate dominated by a rainy season and a dry season. The summer monsoon brings heavy rains to most of the country from May to October, and the winter monsoon brings cooler and drier air from December to February. Manila and most of the lowland areas are hot and dusty from March to May, when temperatures can rise to around 99°F (37°C). Average sea-level temperatures rarely drop below 80°F (27°C). Monsoons are possible between July and October. Weather-wise, the best time to visit the Philippines is between January and May; however, be warned that this is also the high tourist season, and so accommodation and flight prices will be higher.
