October's weather in detail

Typhoons continue to be a risk during October. There is less chance of typhoonal activity in the southern Visayas and Palawan, as they are more protected by other islands. 

With daily temperatures starting to fall slightly to a more bearable average of 25-27°C, it can be a pleasure to visit the Philippines during October, especially later in the month.
