Pagasa: This year’s first weather disturbance may greet the Sinulog grand parade 

By Rosalie O. Abatayo |January 15,2019 - 10:10 PM

CEBU CITY, Philippines — This year’s first tropical depression may greet the Fiesta Señor, more popularly known as the Sinulog Festival,  the state weather bureau said Tuesday.

Netherlen Seletrero, weather specialist of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) in Mactan, said they are currently monitoring a low pressure area (LPA) outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

Seletrero said there is a high chance that the LPA would develop into a tropical depression before it enters PAR in the eastern border of Mindanao on Friday afternoon.

If the LPA would develop into a tropical depression, it would be the first typhoon and will be named ‘Amang.’

“LPA pa man siya so erratic pa ang iyang movement. But we are looking at two possibilities. First is magpabilin lang sya sa kadagatan ug dili lang maglandfall and second is mo-cross gyud siya sa Visayas from southern Cebu and will directly pass through northern Cebu,” Seletrero told CDN Digital on Tuesday.

Seletrero said the LPA will rain starting on Saturday afternoon or during the solemn foot procession and was projected to continue on Sunday, January 20.

“Okay pa sa fluvial procession pero on the foot procession na na pag-uwan-uwan,” she added.

The fluvial parade will be conducted pre-dawn on Saturday that will bring the image of the Sto. Niño from Mactan Island (where it was brought the night before) to Cebu City port area, from where it will be brought to the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño on foot, after which a reenactment of the Christianization of Cebu will be held.

The solemn foot procession, which will be conducted in the afternoon of the same day, is one of the highlights of the Sinulog celebration, held on the eve of the Sto. Niño feast and attended by thousands of devotees.

On Sunday, January 20, the culminating activities will be held, starting with the 8 a.m. Pontifical Mass  at the Basilica at 8 a.m. and the staging of the mardi gras-like grand parade along key routes in the city starting at 9 a.m. /elb

Looks like Monday this thing is going to be over Cebu. May not ruin Sinulog but the travel afterwards will be a mess!

8 AM Sunday update from Pagasa to be found here:

http://bagong.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/tropical-cyclone/severe-weather-bulletin

Signal #1 for Leyte, Samar, parts of Bohol and Northern Cebu and elsewhere. So no boats in quite a few places.

45-60 kph winds expected so not a major storm. Expecting landfall here on Siargao in the late afternoon. It is getting gustier by the hour though.

Started moderate raining about 20 minutes ago here in Lilo-an with no appearance of letting up soon. Guess I'm done welding for today. Perhaps I could use this time to clean up the garage so I can weld inside?  Hmmmmm

We got the, now regular, warning and text message last night telling us the schools would be closed today for elementary level.

When I looked at Windy yesterday we were down for a direct hit at about 8am ... but by lunchtime today nothing had happened... sun came out.

I checked Windy again and Amang seemed to have steered off to Samar - so nothing - not even a shower.

Private schools not closed today where I live in Leyte. Public closed. 

Using Windy app is quite unreliable. Cool looking, but otherwise useless.

I find Windy good for long range planning but the best site for current Tropical info, that I've found is http://typhoon2000.ph/

The storm is currently north of Samar but all the models show it turning around and heading south to southwest

Time to update the Title of this thread?  Amang was late for the parade.

You almost wonder if it will get here at all.  Kind of fizzling out.  Pagasa doesn't even have the usual tracks and stuff on there.
