SINULOG revelers are advised to bring umbrellas and rain coats as rains are expected to hit Cebu City and the rest of the province this coming weekend, the Mactan office of the state weather bureau Pagasa said yesterday.
Pagasa Mactan weather observer Ponce Garcia said they detected the tail-end of a cold front in Eastern Visayas and Mindanao.
He said residents of flood-prone and landslide areas should evacuate in case of incessant rains.
He said revelers looking forward to the fluvial procession on Thursday, Jan. 14, can heave a sigh of relief since the coastal waters would be light.
Commodore Rolando Punzalan of the Philippine Coast Guard said they are also monitoring the sea condition.
As of yesterday morning, Punzalan said they already have 30 registrants who wanted to join the fluvial parade.
Punzalan said they are still finalizing the meeting on the security details for the activity.
Moderate to slightly heavy rainfall would be expected on Friday and Saturday.
On Sunday, the Sinulog main day, city residents can expect cloudy with slight to moderate rains. Reporter Candeze R. Mongaya
