The synoptic station of the Pagasa in Baguio City has warned of further drop in temperature until the end of February.

Temperature readings in the city ranged between 15 and 25.2 degrees Celsius from Jan. 1 to 7, the same forecast for Jan. 8 to 12.

May possibility po na bababa pa ang temperature hanggang sa katapusan ng Pebrero. Malamig talaga sa mga ganitong panahon ng taon,” Mar Santos, weather observer of the Pagasa-Baguio synoptic station, said on Jan. 8.

Santos attributed the temperature drop to the northeast monsoon, mainly due to the wind coming from Siberia, which at this time of the year experiences winter.

In 2023, the lowest temperature in Baguio was 10 degrees Celsius, recorded on Feb. 16.
Historical data showed that the lowest temperature in the Summer Capital is 6.3 degrees Celsius, recorded on Jan. 18, 1961. – PNA
