TAIPEI, Taiwan — Due to a southwesterly airstream and a lingering weather front,
heavy downpours are forecast across Taiwan over the next five days, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said on Wednesday, advising the public to take precautions.
With the southwesterly airstream strengthening on Wednesday, the CWB said it would be largely cloudy across most of Taiwan for the rest of the day, adding that some central and southern areas would receive occasional showers or thunderstorms.
On Friday and Saturday there will be showers and thunderstorms around the country caused by the southwesterly airstream and frontal system. In some areas the rainfall will be designated extremely heavy or higher, the CWB forecast.
Due to the air front, the wet weather will continue until next Monday, with showers and thunderstorms around the island, while some areas will be hit by heavy rain or extremely heavy rain, the CWB said. [FULL STORY]
