followed by afternoon thunderstorms in the coming days, thanks to a high pressure system over the Pacific Ocean, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said Tuesday.

Daytime highs are forecast to reach 33-36 degrees Celsius in the western part of Taiwan and the northeastern county of Yilan and 32-33 degrees in eastern Taiwan’s Hualien and Taitung counties on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the CWB.

Afternoon thunderstorms are still likely, said the CWB, which has issued torrential rain warnings for various parts of the island three days in a row since last Saturday.

The weather pattern is expected to continue until July 4 because of the high pressure system hovering over the Pacific Ocean southeast of Japan, according to the CWB.     [FULL  STORY]
