TAIPEI, Taiwan — The mercury in Taipei topped 36 degrees Celsius for the 10th
day in a row Monday, making it the longest streak in the city on record.
Daytime temperatures have passed 36 C every day since Aug. 5, hitting a high today of 38.2 C, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).
This surpassed the nine-day record set from July 8-16 in 2012 to become the lengthiest Taipei hot spell in the 120 years since the Taipei weather station began making records.
There is a chance the record hot spell will continue, said the CWB, which is forecasting more hot days to come this week.
