Temperatures lowest so far in Oro since December

Correspondent  . 

THE Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) yesterday recorded the lowest temperatures here so far since December 2018.

The drop in the temperatures was due to a cold surge or a result of winds blowing from China, Mongolia, Siberia and surrounding countries where weather conditions are freezing.

Luz Mercado, a weather specialist at the Pagasa station in El Salvador City, said the state weather bureau recorded a drop in the temperatures in the city and the provinces of Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon.

Pagasa’s data show that the temperature in Cagayan de Oro and Misamis Oriental was down to 18.8 degrees Celsius at 2 am, and it further dropped to 17.2 degrees Celsius at around 5 am.

In Malaybalay City in Bukidnon, Pagasa recorded the lowest temperature yesterday at 16 degrees Celsius.

“Ma-o na kadto ang labing bugnaw nga temperature  sukad niadtong December 2018,” she said.

Mercado said the country would continue to have relatively low temperatures as long as the hanging amihan or the trade winds from China, Mongolia and Siberia, among others, prevail.

She said Pagasa’s forecast is that the country would continue to have relatively cold weather conditions until the last week of this month or the first week of March.

“Pagkawala sa hanging amihan, mopuli ang hanging  habagat,” Mercado said.

Mercado said Pagasa expects warmer and drier weather conditions on March, April and May.
