THE dry season has just begun and the Philippine Atmospheric Geographical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) has warned that temperatures could rise to 35 °C, or worse, up to 40 35 °C here.

The state weather bureau said the dry season started on Tuesday when the northeast monsoon or the period when trade winds from the northeast dominate.

June Frivaldo, a weather specialist of the Pagasa station in El Salvador, Misamis Oriental, said the northeast monsoon was replaced by the easterlies or winds blowing from the east.

“Nia na gyud na sa ting-init nga panahon ug wala pay among forecast kon kanus-a  kini tubob ang adlaw sa ting-init. Samtang na-a pa ang easterly winds, init gyud ang atong temperature,” said Frivaldo.

As of 11 am yesterday, Pagasa said the temperature in Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental was 29.9 °C.

Since the start of April, the pre-dry season’s warmest days here were April 1, April 8 and April 9 when the temperature rose to 31.4 °C.

Frivaldo said the easterlies could make the temperatures in Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental to shoot up to 35 °C to 40 °C in the coming days.

Frivaldo advised people to stay indoors as much as possible between 10 am to 3 pm to avoid heat stroke and other heatelated ailments.
