Temps Colder Than Your Ex's Heart Recorded in Metro Manila Yesterday
Time to bundle up with a new S.O.!
(SPOT.ph) We know it's a tall promise, but it seems the current chill in Metro Manila might just remind you of a certain past lover—or an uninterested crushie. Temps in Metro Manila went to a record low of 18.5°C on the morning of Tuesday, February 4; the number was registered at around 6:30 a.m. at the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration's Science Garden monitoring station in Quezon City.
The same number was also recorded on February 1, making both days the coldest so far since the prevailing amihan season began in October 2019, according to a report by the Manila Bulletin. The first recorded low cold drop was at 19°C on January 22. These bone-chilling and nostalgia-inducing temps are predicted to continue as the amihan usually reaches its peak in February.
It's probably best to pile on the hoodies and break out the rain-gear as well, since the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) also predicts that the amihan will be bringing in light rains throughout the week. Bundle up, wash your hands regularly, and enjoy the cold while it lasts—with or without a new flame!
