Taipei, Dec. 26 (CNA) There are chances of snow on Dec. 30, in mountains higher than 1,000 meters in northern Taiwan, thanks to abundant moisture and a cold surge, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said Saturday.

The cold and wet air will send temperatures to 8-11 degrees Celsius in northern Taiwan, while mountainous and coastal areas there will see lows between 5-8 degrees, the bureau said.

Wu Der-rong (吳德榮), an adjunct associate professor of atmospheric sciences at National Central University, said snow fans could try Datun and Qixing mountains in Taipei from the evening of Dec. 30, but cautioned that the amount is expected to be small.

Besides the north, there are also chances of snow in Taiping Mountain in eastern Taiwan's Yilan County between late Dec. 30 and early Dec. 31, Wu said.    [FULL  STORY]
