MANILA - A ridge of high pressure area will raise temperatures in the country this week, state weather bureau PAGASA said Sunday. 

The weather system associated with humid and fair weather will start affecting Northern Luzon, particularly Tuguegarao and Cabanatuan cities, in "the next few days," PAGASA weather forecaster Ariel Rojas told DZMM. 

Tuguegarao on Saturday recorded a temperature of 37.8 degrees Celsius, he mentioned.

For now, the country will experience fair weather except for possible localized thunderstorms in the afternoon or evening due to the easterlies or warm air from the Pacific, said Rojas. 

Temperatures in the next days will range from 24 to 34 degrees Celsius in Metro Manila, 25 to 32 degrees Celsius in Cebu province, and 24 to 33 degrees Celsius in Davao region, he added.
