Cordillera - The country's second highest mountain, the Mt. Pulag in Kabayan, Benguet had frost Tuesday morning. 

Frost is a type of precipitation that occurs when the temperature of a surface falls below freezing point and the water vapor in the air condenses into ice crystals. 

This can happen on Mt. Pulag, as the summit of the mountain reaches elevations of over 2,900 meters above sea level. 

At these high elevations, the temperature can drop well below freezing, making frost a common occurrence.

Frost is most likely to form on Mt. Pulag during the dry season, which runs from November to May. 

During this time, clear skies and low humidity make it easier for the temperature to drop and for frost to form. 

Visitors to the mountain during this time period should be prepared for the colder temperatures and potential frost, and dress accordingly.
