Baguio City hits lowest temperature at 9.4 degrees Celsius as of 6 AM today

Cordillera - Baguio City's mercury dropped to 9.4 degrees Celsius at 6 A.M. Friday morning, setting a new record for the lowest temperature for 2020. 

This is the lowest temperature recorded this year since the peak of "amihan" (northwest monsoon).

The lowest recorded temperature in Baguio was 6.3 Celsius on January 18, 1961.

Some parts of Benguet has lower temperature than Baguio City like Atok, Benguet which can hit a record of 2 degrees Celsius. 

The cold front from China has intensified and made the "amihan" (northwest monsoon wind) stronger, causing the dip in temperature from Luzon to Visayas, according to Pagasa.

To protect someone from the bad effect of the cold weather, residents and tourists in Baguio are advised to dress warmly and wear warm and waterproof footwear.

They should dress in layers, wear clothes with wind resistant outer layer, wear a hat and mittens. If necessary they should also wear facemask and scarf or neck tube.

When is is very cold or when the wind chill is significant, cover as much exposed skin as possible. Protect the body's extremities, such as the ears, nose, fingers, and toes because these are the parts that easily lose heat fast.
