MANILA, Philippines – State weather bureau PAGASA warns of hotter days ahead after the temperature in Metro Manila reached 36.2°C on Saturday – the highest recorded so far in 2015.

"Painit nap o nang painit ang panahon, kasi papalapit na po ang Mayo," PAGASA weather forecaster Manny Mendoza told DZMM.

Mendoza said it is possible for temperature to reach 40°C due to El Niño, particularly in General Santos, Cagayan, Tuguegarao, and Cabanatuan.

On Sunday, there may be isolated rains across the country, mostly in the afternoon or evening.

In its weekly outlook, PAGASA also said that no tropical cyclone is expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility in the next five days. -- Reports from Leo Humangit, DZMM; ANC
