sunsetThe Philippines, being in a tropical region, has only two seasons: dry and wet.

In Cagayan de Oro, rains are evenly distributed through out the year. There is more rain from June to October (wet season) and less from November to May (dry season).

April is the driest month with a minimum mean of 5 rainy days. Cagayan de Oro is outside the Pacific Typhoon belt and is not directly visited by a tropical cyclone. However, the city can still be affected by heavy rains that could disrupt airline and shipping operations.

Philippine summer starts from March to May and is the peak season for local tourist travel. April, May and August (due to the northern hemisphere weather) are the warmest months of the year while January and February are the coldest months of the year. The highest temperature recorded was in May 1998 at 36 degrees C or 97 degrees F.

Note: Values has been rounded off to the nearest whole value for quick reference.

Due to the warm and humid climate, casual clothing (cotton fabric) is acceptable in almost all places and occasions. An umbrella is always handy during the monsoon and warm sunny days. When outdoors, apply some sunscreen.

Weather conditions throughout the Philippines have been erratic for the past decade. In 1998 and 1999, Cagayan de Oro experienced both the lowest and the highest recorded rainfall in decades. This was due to the El Niño and La Niña phenomena which has disrupted weather patterns through out the country.
