could come during December 28-31 in high mountain regions in Taiwan, where temperatures could drop below zero degrees Celsius for a period of time, adding that chances of snow are especially high on December 30 because of more moisture in the sky.

Even though cold air is not strong on flat areas, temperatures on Hehuan Mountain and Jade Mountain could drop below zero degrees Celsius from December 28 – 31, Wu said. Coupled with moisture in the sky, these regions are very likely to see the first snow during this period, he added.
