tubúng

Hiligaynon

A farmer's weather-rule, weather forecast, peasant's maxim. Many believe that the weather during the first twelve days of January somehow forecasts the weather for the whole year. The second day of January is called the "tubúng" of February, the third the "tubúng" of March, the fourth the "tubúng" of April and so on. Kon magulán sa ikápat ka ádlaw sang Enéro magaulán man sa búlan sa Abril, kay naulanán man ang íya sinâ nga tubúng. If it rains on the fourth day of January there will be rain in April, because it rained on the day that forecasts the weather for April.
