“[If mo init] taas-taas gyud siya so magdala gyud tanan ug payong ug tubig daghan,” he said.

(If it will be warm weather, it [the temperature] will really be higher so we should bring umbrella and drink plenty of water.)

Quiblat advised Cebuanos, particularly during the election, to opt for light-color clothing, and avoid prolonged sun exposure exceeding 20 minutes.

The Pagasa Mactan chief said that there would be a significant probability of it developing into a low-pressure area but a lower likelihood of intensifying into a storm.

“Expected na two to three days nga musulod sa PAR as cloud cluster or low-pressure area. But it’s very far from land so dili pa ta kaexpect sa iyang epekto for the next five days,” Quiblat said on Thursday.

(It is expected to enter PAR [Philippine Area of Responsibility] as cloud cluster or low pressure area. But it’s very far from land so we don’t expect its effect in the next five days.)
