IF YOU felt extra hot during the weekend, here’s why. Cebu experienced its hottest days of the month last Saturday and Sunday, with temperatures approaching levels last recorded during a heat wave over three decades ago.

Oscar Tabada of the government’s weather station in Mactan revealed, in a TV Patrol Central Visayas report yesterday, that Cebu’s temperature rose to 36.4 degrees Celsius during the weekend.

The last time Cebu experienced a heat wave was in the summer of 1979, when the temperature reached about 36.6 degrees Celsius, Tabada said. Cebu, while hot, still has lower temperatures than Tuguegarao City, where temperatures hit 38 degrees Celsius last week, said Pagasa weather specialist Kelly Torregosa.

In April, the average temperature in the Visayas ranged from 24 to 34 degrees. That same month, the highest recorded temperature in Tuguegarao was 39.7 degrees. The weather bureau is sticking to its forecast that the “moderate” El Niño, which began in June 2009, will last until June this year.
