CEBU CITY, Philippines – Cebu weather will be generally fair with sunny skies for the next five days, Pagasa-Mactan said on its latest updates. 

Engineer Al Quiblat, chief of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration Mactan (Pagasa-Mactan), said that Cebu will have generally fair weather with sunny skies occasionally turning partly cloudy or cloudy at times in the next five days. 

In addition, there is a chance of passing isolated showers due to easterlies or thunderstorms and isolated rain showers may occur, but overall conditions will remain mostly dry.

In terms of heat, the heat index is forecasted to range between 33°C to 39°C, indicating hot and humid conditions.

As of present, there is no gale warning for Central Visayas, suggesting safe marine conditions.

Moreover, no tropical cyclones or Low Pressure Areas (LPAs) are anticipated within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

The Pagasa stated on Friday, February 9, that no storms are expected to form or enter the Philippines this weekend. 

However, rain showers may still occur in some areas due to two weather systems: the easterlies and the northeast monsoon, locally known as amihan.

“Base naman po sa ating latest satellite animation, wala tayong namamataan na low pressure area or bagyo na papasok sa ating PAR sa susunod na tatlong araw,” Pagasa expert Benison Estareja said on Friday.

The prevailing two weather systems could get stronger in the next few days, affecting the weather more significantly.

Meanwhile, a flood watch has been issued for four areas in Mindanao due to moderate rain and thunderstorms, according to a statement released by the state weather bureau on Friday.
