After the termination of the Northeast Monsoon and the start of the dry season, recent observations from several DOST-PAGASA stations showed a gradual increase in daily temperature over many parts of the country and the strengthening of the North Pacific High. Furthermore, the number of dry and warm days across the country will continue to increase, though isolated thunderstorms are also likely to occur, especially in the afternoon or evening hours.
Meanwhile, the ongoing La Niña may still affect some parts of the country, which may significantly result in above normal rainfall conditions for April.
The public and all concerned government agencies are advised to take precautionary measures to minimize heat stress, optimize the daily use of water for personal and domestic consumption, and prevent any accompanying health risks associated with this climate condition.
Despite the ongoing community quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DOST-PAGASA will continue to monitor the day-to-day weather and long-term climate situation and provide updates when significant changes occur.
