Is it a heatwave we are experiencing today in the Philippines?
What is a heatwave?
According to the World Meteorological Organization, a heatwave occurs when the maximum temperature for five consecutive days is above the average of 5 C.
The Philippines is not experiencing heat waves today.
Temperatures measured at PAGASA stations across the country this summer usually do not exceed 5 C from the average maximum temperature; if it exceeds, it takes no more than five days.
The average maximum temperature recorded by one PAGASA station is 33 C. That is, on dates 2-6 where the recorded temperature exceeds 5 C from the average there is a heatwave.
