Manila Philippines Weather
November to April is the most popular time of year to visit the Philippines, when rainfall is lowest and you can easily reach the main tourist attractions of the tropical archipelago such as beaches and beaches. The dry season is considered the best time of year for visiting the tropics of the Arc Islands, the rainy season the worst.
In areas with a tropical climate where winter drought is evident, the best months to visit Manila are January and February. January is the least hot and driest month in Manila, and it rains the most during this time of year, with an average of 2.5 inches of rain per year. In areas where it is dry and easiest to travel, such as northern Manila and southern Mindanao, January can also be a good month.
The best time to visit the Philippines as a whole is from January to February, although January is in some cases a particularly rainy month in regions with equatorial climates, which are rainy all year round, while in others, such as the region's equator, it rains all year round.
If you are looking for a very warm time to visit Manila, the hottest months are May, April and then June. If you are looking for dry weather, February, January and April are the warmest months, with temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s.
If you want to go in July or August, you can prefer Mindanao, which is less rainy, generally protected from typhoons and therefore acceptable during this time.
Eastern Visayas usually experience the most rainfall and the highest rainfall and typhoons, while the northern islands of Luzon typically enjoy a warm, dry climate. Western islands, including Palawan, are much drier, and the Philippines are almost always high, making them hot and humid. Generally speaking, temperatures remain high throughout the year, although they are slightly lower in December and February. On the southernmost islands near the equator, the temperature is more stable and higher in the summer months, although slightly lower from December to February, but still high in the winter months.
Average temperatures can reach 32 degrees in some parts of the country in May, especially in the city of Manila and the lowlands. Still, the weather in Manila is much warmer than elsewhere in the country and much drier than in other cities.
Although the dry season, which usually lasts from February to April, is not defined as tropical, because it rains throughout the Philippines in the summer, but is rare in most protected areas. In rainy years, the east coast of the Philippines has an equatorial climate. The equator, i.e. exposed to northeast winds, is shortened by an "equatorial" climate zone.
The weather is particularly hospitable when the day is sunny and the sky is blue and the temperatures are refreshingly cool, especially in the early morning hours.
The sunshine in Manila is rare during monsoon rains and thunderstorms, which are usually very local and therefore not very predictable, and can occur randomly during typhoon season. The weather is also good in the afternoon and evening, with showers and thunderstorms. Tropical rains can also occur during tropical storms and typhoons that last for several days and can be accompanied by strong winds. Heavy rainfall often turns into typhoons, which is a positive risk as visitors are at risk of hitting falling objects and being swept away by flash floods.
If you want to travel to the mountains in the rainy season, it is best to do so at the beginning of your holiday. If you miss your flight to and from the Philippines, you can expect to be able to travel only after the typhoon strikes and moves away. It is good not to go to Manila during the rainy season or to visit during these months.
As of 07.10.2019 there are no travel warnings or regional advisories for the Philippines. There are others, but you should get familiar with everyone before you go on holiday to the Philippines, especially if you plan to travel during the typhoon season. Avoid these areas and exercise a high degree of caution, as typhoons can cause serious damage to property and life.
Visitors to Manila during the rainy season should pack waterproof jackets, wind jackets and umbrellas to recharge their luggage and be prepared to walk a lot. Visitors to the Manila Islands should bring moisture with them in the drier season - damp clothing such as rain jackets, rain pants and rain boots.
American colonial officials in March and May, Manila visitors learn exactly why they moved the entire government to the Baguio highlands during the summer months. Manila gets only few tourists at this time of year because the cost of living is high and there are no tourist attractions. The best time to visit Manila during the rainy season (April, May and June) is the end of December and the beginning of April, according to the beach results. Many visitors to Manila go out at this time of year to see the rest of Luzon, including beaches in the Bay of Manila, Cagayan de Oro, Quezon City and Cebu City.
