MANILA, April 25 — The temperature in Metro Manila was recorded at 36.2 degrees Celsius for two consecutive days, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said on Wednesday.

According to Ricky Fabregas, weather forecaster, Metro Manila recorded 36.2 degrees Celsius temperature at around 1:58 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon.

But the highest temperature recorded on Wednesday as of 2:00 p.m. was at 37 degrees Celsius in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija while Tuguegarao City in Cagayan at 36; Clark, Pampanga felt 34.3 degrees Celsius; and Dagupan City in Pangasinan at 34.3, Fabregas said.

He said that the agency expected hotter days ahead due to ridge of high pressure area (HPA), which brings warm weather extending across Luzon.

On Tuesday afternoon, Metro Manila's temperature also reached 36.2 degrees Celsius, the hottest so far recorded in the metropolis.

Clark has recorded this year's highest temperature of 38.4 degrees Celsius on April 13.

Meanwhile, in its 5:00 p.m. advisory, PAGASA said Luzon will experience partly cloudy skies while the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms mostly in the afternoon or evening.

Light to moderate winds from the east to southeast will prevail over Luzon and Visayas, and coming from the east to northeast over the rest of the country.

The coastal waters will be slight to moderate throughout the archipelago. (PNA) DCT/CLTC
