Here in our country Amihan refers to the season dominated by trade winds which we experience as cool northeast winds. It is characterized by moderate temperature and little or no rainfall.

We have two seasons in the country every year, two kinds of winds, the Amihan and Habagat. Amihan is known as the Northeast monsoon while Habagat is known as the Southwest monsoon. Habagat is the rainy season which occurs from May to October. It is where we have an average of around twenty typhoons. We are having the 15th now although Metro Manila is not affected.
