Philippine Weather Seasons

The "Habagat" season from June to December is the time typhoons pass by the Philippine islands in the Pacific Ocean sending swell and waves into the Philippine shores. Sometime these typhoons do hit landfall with high winds and create flooding and landslides. The hottest time of year is from March to May which also happens to be summer vacation for all the schools.

During "Amihan" season from December to March good northeast to east wind swell waves can be found at protected from wind and south facing surf locations which provide glassier side to offshore surf conditions.
