Summer, from mid-May through July, brings increasingly hot weather with occasional cooling thunderstorms that increase in frequency during June. Temperatures climb to an average high of 33°C (91°F) in May at the onset of the wet season.
The wet southwest monsoon, known as Habagat, lasts from July to mid-November and brings hot and humid weather with frequent heavy rainfall and a prevailing west wind, which can develop into tropical storms known as the typhoon season in the Philippines.
