October falls within the wet southwest monsoon season, known locally as habagat.
You can expect increasingly hot weather peaking around 31°C (88°F), with clear sunny skies interspersed by rain clouds and fresh breezes that produce choppy sea conditions on the west coast.
In October, it usually rains for at least two hours every day and during the night. This is the typhoon season so heavy rainfall may develop into the occasional tropical storm that can last for three to four days.
During the wet season, west coast beaches become windier – perfect for wind surfing and kite surfing – while the less-windy east coast beaches offer calm seas that are good for swimming.
