Pagasa: Cebuanos may expect nice weather starting Jan. 3

·1 min read

CEBUANOS may expect an improved weather condition starting Monday, Jan. 3, 2022, as the shear line that produced rains in the past days over the Visayas has started to dissipate.

However, the northeast monsoon, locally known as “Amihan,” will prevail in the coming days, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) Visayas bureau chief Alfredo Quiblat Jr. told SunStar Cebu on Sunday, Jan. 2.

The shear line is the convergence of the cold wind of the northeast monsoon with the warm wind from the easterlies that causes cloud formations.

Quiblat previously reported that Cebuanos should expect rainy weather as the new year comes in and he had forecasted a volume of rainfall of up to 70 millimeters.

The easterlies, however, bringing warm winds have weakened and the northeast monsoon will take over and will bring a cold breeze, Quiblat added.

Temperature in Cebu may reach as low as 23 degrees Celsius, which can be felt around 5 a.m. to 6 a.m.

“Expect colder weather in the coming days in January since it is the coldest month of the year,” said Quiblat.

In its weather advisory released at 2 p.m. of Jan. 2, Pagasa said the shear line has brought light to moderate with occasional heavy rains affecting the provinces in Central and Eastern Visayas.

Cebu City Risk Reduction and Management Council head Gerardo Carillo said Sunday, Jan. 2, that their office is monitoring possible landslides that may occur in mountain barangays.
