Possibility of rain during festival only 10 to 20 percent, says Pag-asa

THE state weather bureau foresees good weather during the Sinulog grand parade this Sunday, with the possibility of rains hovering only between 10 and 20 percent.

“On Sunday, there will be improved weather condition. There is less probability of raining,” said Alfredo Quiblat, senior weather specialist at the Mactan, Cebu Station of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

But the forecast, he said, may still change, adding the weather agency can make a more accurate forecast by Friday.

“Isolated rains may still occur on Sunday,” Quiblat said.

As of yesterday, the Pag-asa detected no tropical cyclone within the country’s area of responsibility.

Quiblat advised those who will attend the festival, estimated by organizers to reach two million, to bring umbrellas and jackets. (more)
