In the past few days, Bacolod City has experienced bright sky and humid temperature. But this week, expect increasing chances of rainy days and thunderstorms. Meanwhile, roads near the market, especially in Amelia Street in Libertad Market, are now wider and cleaner following the clearing operations of sidewalk stalls in the road. For everyone in the city, there’s nothing more exciting than knowing that the upcoming 40th Masskara Festival will bring fabulous activities as the Silver MassKara Festival Organization, Inc. (SMFOI) plans to level up the festival. For the full details, read on!

Weather Advisory: Clouds and thunderstorms throughout the week

This week’s weather may not be best for an outing. There will be a slight chance of sun on Monday, August 26, so you may still enjoy National Heroes Day exploring coffee shops and attractions near the City of Smiles. However, starting Tuesday, August 27, rains and thunderstorms will dominate and it’s not a good idea to go farther from the city. For your reference, the temperature this week will range from 28°C to 31°C [1].
