Metro Manila temperature at 15.8° Celsius

Temperatures in Metro Manila reached a new low Sunday, going down more than one degree Celsius from Saturday's 16.9° C, PAGASA forecasters said.

PAGASA said its measurements at the Science Garden in Quezon City showed the predawn Sunday temperature at 15.8° C, radio dzBB's Rodil Vega reported.

On Saturday, PAGASA said the 16.9° C was so far the lowest temperature recorded this year.

The dzBB report quoted PAGASA forecaster Aldczar Aurelio as saying the cold weather is due to the northeast monsoon, which may continue until February.

Last Jan. 18, temperatures in the National Capital Region fell to 17.5° C.

But the record-low temperature in NCR was at 15.1 on Feb. 4, 1987 and Dec. 30, 1988.
