MANILA, Philippines — It’s been more than a month since the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA) declared the end of the summer season, but current projections show the weather will continue to be hot and humid at least for the next three days.

With no low-pressure area or brewing weather disturbance in sight, temperatures in Metro Manila and other parts of the country are forecast to be high.

There are still chances of thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, PAGASA said. But with lesser cloud formations, the agency predicted a hot and humid weather condition until Wednesday.

PAGASA said the ridge of a high-pressure area is the prevailing weather system affecting the eastern section of Northern and Central Luzon.

In a three-day weather forecast issued yesterday, the weather bureau said fair weather would be experienced in the next three days, with Metro Manila’s temperature ranging from 24 to 34 degrees Celsius and 16 to 25 degrees for Baguio City.

Based on observed temperature extremes for the first two weeks of this month, records showed that it was hottest at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Pasay City at 36.2 degrees Celsius on June 10 and 13.

PAGASA said it was also hot at 35.3 degrees in Port Area, Manila on June 11 and at the Quezon City Science Garden on June 10 at 35.2 degrees Celsius.

When the end of the dry season and the onset of the rainy season were declared on May 18, PAGASA administrator Vicente Malano said intermittent rains associated with the southwest monsoon or habagat would affect Metro Manila and the western section of the country.

However, Malanao noted that breaks in rainfall events, also known as monsoon breaks, which can last for several days or weeks, might still occur.
