holiday that begins Thursday, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said.

Cheng Ming-dean (鄭明典), director of the CWB’s Weather Forecast Center, wrote on his Facebook page Wednesday that winds from southwest of Taiwan and moisture from the south will bring rain to all parts of the island between June 9 and June 14.

He said the rain will be particularly heavy in the afternoon.

The wetter weather is not expected to bring much of a change in temperatures, though it could make nighttimes more comfortable, Cheng said.

Daytime temperatures will range between 31 degrees and 34 degrees but cool down to between 25 and 26 degrees in the morning or at night with the help of the expected rainfall, he predicted.     [FULL  STORY]
