Isabela registers 40.1 degrees Celcius temperature this week

ECHAGUE, Isabela — The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has registered for the second time in the last five years high temperature this week.

Ramil Tuppil, weather specialist from PAGASA-Isabela, said his office registered 40.1 degrees Celcius temperature Wednesday at the town of Echague.

Tuppil said that the high temperature was last registered on May 24, 2010 with temperature of 40.2 degrees Celcius in the province when El Niño hit the northern Luzon provinces.

He said the high pressure area in Northern Hemisphere brings hot weather in Luzon until next month.

The weather specialist advised the public to take precautionary measures to beat the heat being experience in the province by taking enough water intake.

He said the hot weather will be felt until next month.

Meanwhile, the province experienced light rains yesterday afternoon in the City of Ilagan and its nearby localities and at dawn today (April 29), a heavy downpour.

The rain at least reduced the hot temperature that was experienced in the last few days. PNA/
