CEBU CITY, Philippines — Bright skies are expected to greet contingents and spectators of the Pasigarbo sa Sugbo this afternoon, August 25.

Weather Specialist Jhomer Eclarino of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) Visayas said that raining is unlikely during the day because of the absence of cloud formations over Cebu.

But he warned those who wanted to watch especially the Pasigarbo sa Sugbu street dancing competition of temperature that would range form 26 to 33 degrees Celsius with a heat index of up to 39 degrees Celsius.
