The weather in Taiwan this week will range between sunny and cloudy as the island comes under the influence of a Pacific high pressure system. The Central Weather Bureau said Sunday that brief afternoon thundershowers will develop this coming week, mostly in areas north of central Taiwan, as well as northeastern and eastern Taiwan and mountainous areas.
The daytime temperatures will be in the 30s Celsius throughout Taiwan between Sunday and July 1. Forecasters say that the highs in some areas could reach the mid-to-upper 30s on Sunday and Monday.
Southeastern Taiwan could also see foehn winds – those are dry and warm down-slope winds that the bureau is forecasting for between Sunday and Tuesday. Forecasters are advising people to be aware of high temperatures brought by the winds. [FULL STORY]
