Cooler days in the Philippines are usually felt during the months of December to February. And within these #SweatherWeather months, you can expect people to wear knitted cardigans, long sleeve shirts, hoodies, and heavy jackets.
While many of us are enjoying the colder climate, do you also wonder why there’s such a thing as a seasonal climate transition?
Due to the tilting of the Earth’s axis, we experience a phenomenon called a “seasonal lag.” It causes the water to cool down longer than land since the majority of Earth is covered in it. Higher heat capacity is, therefore, necessary to warm up the climate. This is why the coldest temperatures of the year are typically delayed until January.
In a recent report, the mountaintop city of Baguio had sharply dropped to 9.0 degrees Celsius last January 30. Aside from Baguio, many places around the country experience colder temperature.
This was attested by Facebook user Min Julie, when she posted a compilation of “The New Baguio” photos by netizens.
Where is the real “new Baguio”? Did y’all temperatures dropped to 9.8 degrees celsius as well 😂
While some online users took time to relate the cold weather on some “hugot”.
Yung di ka makapunta sa Baguio kaya yung Baguio na yung nag adjust para sayo.
Despite the biting cold from the air, there are a lot of reasons to love the cool climate. For one thing, it’s the best time to stay indoors and enjoy a warm and cozy feeling.
