TAIPEI, Taiwan — The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) forecast Sunday that the current wet weather will
continue until Thursday due to a hovering front and the southwest monsoon, with showers or thundershowers expected around Taiwan.
Because of the front and monsoon, the island would receive showers or thundershowers on Sunday, said CWB forecaster Lin Po-tung (林伯東), noting that the bureau has issued an extreme heavy rain warning to the areas south of Taichung, Miaoli County and mountainous areas in Hualien County.
Northern Taiwan, Yilan County in northeast Taiwan, mountainous areas in Taitung County in the southeast, and the island groups of Penghu and Kinmen were within the range of the CWB’s heavy rain advisory.
Lin said there would be less rain in southern Taiwan’s mountains on Sunday compared to the previous day, but people in other parts of the island should be aware of sudden downpours. [FULL STORY]
