Pagasa’s warning: Stay dry; rains to greet Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Dakbayan
CEBU CITY, Philippines — Those who are planning to watch the Sinulog sa Kabataan sa Dakbayan this afternoon, January 12, 2020, should keep their rain gears close.
Jhomer Eclarino, a weather specialist of the Mactan Station of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), said the chances of rains are high in Metro Cebu during the day.
As of 10 a.m., light rains have started to pour in Mandaue and Cebu cities.
“Taas ang chances nga makasinati ta og pat-ak pat-an nga mga pag-ulan that is light to moderate. Mostly cloudy to cloudy ta for the entire day,” Eclarino said.
Temperatures in Metro Cebu will range between 25 to 30 degrees Celsius with an equivalent heat index of up to 34 degrees Celsius, he added.
“Tungod kini sa tinatawag nato nga northeast na hangin ug mga localized nga thunderstorms. Isolated ni so dili kaayo lapad ang mga pag-ulan,” Eclarino said.
(This is a result of the the northeast moonsoon and localized thunderstorms. But this is isolated so we are not expecting heavy downpours during the day.)
Eclarino added that more pronounced and scattered rains are now being experienced in Eastern Visayas due to a low pressure area (LPA) that is now located at least 655 kilometers east of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.
However, Eclarino said there will be less chances that the LPA will develop into a tropical depression. / dcb
