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 archipelago from May to October, whereas 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. Even at this time, however, temperatures rarely rise above 37° C. Every year during the rainy season nearly 20 typhoons, known as "bagyos" blow across the islands usually lasting 3 or 4 days. Steamy, sunny days during the wet season are common after the tropical downpours of heavy rain during the nights and early mornings.
In the highest elevations of 1200 meters and above in the Mountain and Ifugao provinces of Luzon and in several areas of Mindanao the climate can be very cold often under 10c especially at night until mid-morning. Although there is a dry season in the the higher elevations of Luzon it is much shorter and not nearly as hot. In most of Mindanao there isn't any clearly defined dry season with a wet and wetter climate making it hot and humid weather all year round.
