Taipei, Feb. 25 (CNA) The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) issued heavy rain alerts for several areas in northern Taiwan on Saturday, predicting cold and wet weather for the northern part of the country that day as a strong cold air mass from China continues its grip on Taiwan.

The rain alerts were issued for Taipei, New Taipei and Keelung cities and Yilan county, while strong wind alerts were issued for all counties and cities, except for Taipei, Tainan, Kaohsiung and Chiayi cities and Yilan, Hualien and Nantou counties.

Under the effect of the cold air mass and as rain and clouds from southern China continue to move east toward Taiwan, northern and northeastern Taiwan could experience chilly and wet weather throughout the day, the CWB said, cautioning people in those areas to keep warm.    [FULL  STORY]
