Pampanga and Tarlac often record some of the highest temperatures in the Philippines during its hot dry season (often above 38 C / 100 F). This is due to their geography of being vast inland plains surrounded by mountains. They share this scorching heat with other river valleys in the Philippines such as the Cagayan Valley in Northern Luzon where the highest temperatures in the Philippines are often recorded.
