Weather and Climate in Philippines

                     Weather and climate here in Philippines is not like other country. We all know that there are four season of weather: spring, summer, winter and fall or autumns. But here in the Philippines we only have three season it is the hot season (tag araw or tag init), rainy season (tag ulan) and cold season (tag lamig). Weather is different from climate, if we say weather it always tackle about  the condition of the atmosphere over a short of period of time. While climate is how the atmosphere behaves over relatively long period of time.
                       There are three distinct kind of climate: temperature, humidity and rainfall. Temperature refer to the temperature every month, it measure the coolest and heatest month of the while year. Humidityrefer to the moisture content of the atmosphere due to high temperature and the surrounding bodies of water. The combination of warm temperature and high relative and absolute humidities give rise to high sinsible temperature throughout the archipelago. And the most important climatic element in the Philippines. Rainfall distributed throughout the country varies from one region to another, depending upon the direction of the moisture bearing wind and location of the mountain system.
                       The climate, using temperature and rainfall as bases, the climate of the country can be divided into two major season. The rainy season from June to November and the dry season from December to May. The dry season may be subdivided further into (a)cool dry season from December to February and (b) hot dry season from March to May.

                         El Nino and La Nina is also part of the the climate. Weather and Climate is important to us in order us to survive. we are so lucky the we dont suffer any problem in our weather and climate not like other country. Weather and climate have also affect our life.
