MANILA – It's not even officially summer yet but weather bureau PAGASA sees a hot weekend across the country.

As of 2 p.m., PAGASA's Science Garden Complex in Diliman, Quezon City recorded a maximum temperature of 33.4 degrees Celsius. 

"Mga 5 p.m. or early evening, may chance pang tumaas," said PAGASA weather observer Carizz Deleña.

Yesterday, the maximum temperature recorded for Metro Manila was 33.6 degrees Celsius at 1:50 p.m. 

Deleña said the highest temperature recorded for the month of February was 34 degrees Celsius on Feb. 17.

Despite the warm weather, Pagasa said localized thunderstorms will bring cloudy skies and isolated rainshowers in parts of the country, but this would have no significant impact. 
 
The temperature in Metro Manila and the rest of the country on Sunday is expected to reach up to a maximum of 33 degrees Celsius except for Baguio City, where the temperature may range from a crisp 15 degrees Celsius to a temperate 24 degrees Celsius.
