The snow, brought by a continental cold air mass that hit the country earlier this week, did not last very long, Wu noted but said there is more to come.
Another cold air mass, stronger than the current one, is expected to hit Taiwan on Friday and if humidity and temperature conditions are right, there could be more snow on mountains with an elevation of 3,000-meters or higher, he said.
