September's weather in detail

Whilst it’s true that September is the height of wet season in the Philippines, with thousands of islands spread over such a large area it's always possible to find somewhere to escape the worst weather. As the rains move south they lose some of their intensity, and in regions such as Bohol, Cebu and Siargao rainfall is interspersed by sunshine.

Warm temperatures can be experienced across the islands, with daily temperatures ranging from 24°C to 33°C.
