The Non-Rainy Season!

Is there a dry season in the Philippines?

The dry season in the Philippines is from November to May. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t rain, just not every day. Instead of 200-300 millimeters (8-12 inches) of rain per month in the rainy season you’re getting about 100-200 millimeters (4-8 inches) per month, which is still a lot of rain.

There are four different types of weather in the Philippines.:

  • Type I: (Manila Area): Two pronounced seasons: dry from November to April and wet during the rest of the year.
  • Type II: (Samar Area): No dry season with a pronounced rainfall from November to January.
  • Type III: (Cebu Area): Seasons are not very pronounced, relatively dry from November to April, and wet during the rest of the year.
  • Type IV:(General Santos Area): Rainfall is more or less evenly distributed throughout the year.

The Weather in the Philippines is as varied as the region you live in, be it the tropical jungles, mountains, coastlines, or the flat lands. Just remember that you can always find the perfect weather if you do a little research.
