According to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), today June 21 marks the longest day of the year as the summer solstice occurs in the Northern Hemisphere.

Accordingly, by definition, it is “the day with the most hours of sunlight during the whole year.” But in Cagayan de Oro City, residents can’t wait for the day to end as rain clouds have already developed and blanketed the skies above. Photo shows a portion of Barangay Kauswagan with the darkened skies which collaborated PAG-ASA’s forecast of rain in late afternoon.
