This week marks the beginning of April, and Metro Manila is as filled with updates as ever. Despite the start of the dry season in the country, the weather in the metro can still range from sunny to stormy. For transportation news, residents of Antipolo can now commute more easily to Taguig via a modern jeepney. In terms of air travel, new upgrades from a major airline will make services such as ticketing and flight reservation more convenient for passengers.

Weather: Sunny to rainy weather to last the whole week

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced that the dry season has finally started. However, although there will be plenty of sun the whole week, thunderstorms are expected in some days, specifically on March 30, April 3, and 4. On these dates, expect mostly cloudy weather with a chance of thunderstorms. Meanwhile, day temperature will range from 32 °C to 35°C for the entire week and at night, temperature will fall around 23 °C to 27 °C [1]. Make sure to bring an umbrella to always be prepared for both the sun and rain.
