From October to February, the northeastern monsoon brings cold winds from the north, creating cool and dry weather. From March to May, the Philippines experiences hot summers. Coastal areas next to the Pacific Ocean experience year-round rainfall.

The country's average temperature can range from 78-90°F (25-32°C), with humidity around 77 percent. Highland areas are much cooler, with nighttime temperatures at night plunging to 68°F (20°C).
