Climate at Atmosphere, Philippines
The climate of the Philippines is tropical, with moderate to high temperatures and moderate to high humidity. Typically, the Manila region has two distinct seasons. A dry winter season runs from December to June, and a slightly wetter summer season runs from July to November. Atmosphere is located further south and therefore has less distinct seasons, with less rain and a longer dry period. The dry season brings moderate seas and on-shore breezes. The wetter season has glass-flat seas and minimal offshore winds. Our coolest month typically falls in January and the hottest, in May.
Water temperatures vary between 26-30oC. There is usually no need to bring warmer clothes, but a long sleeved sweater or cardigan can come in handy on windy or rainy evenings. For Scuba diving, long wetsuits would be most comfortable during the winter; short suits are perfect during the summer.
