Cebu weather: Rainy Monday due to shear line
CEBU, Philippines—Cebu’s weather on Monday, November 20, 2023, is expected to be rainy due to a shear line affecting most of the Visayas.
In its 4 a.m. weather forecast, Pagasa weather specialist Obet Badrina said latest satellite images show that a shear line is affecting majority of the Visayas and parts of southern Luzon on Monday.
This said shear line will bring rains in the Visayas, including Cebu, and parts of southern Luzon
What is a shear line?
“Itong shear line ay bangaan ng mainit at malamig na hangin. Dahil sa magkaibang temperatura ay nagkakaroon tayo ng mga kaulapan at ito ay nagdadala ng pag ulan,” Badrina said in his report.
(A shear line is when cold and warm air meet. Because of the difference of the temperatures, it will be cloudy and this will bring rain.)
