Today marked spring equinox, the official start of spring on the solar calendar. All of Taiwan was unseasonably warm today, with the nation’s highest temperature of 36 degrees recorded in Kaohsiung. In Taipei the mercury soared to 32.5 degrees, making today the city’s hottest spring equinox in 120 years.
Forecasters say the current warm spell will be short-lived. Cold northeasterly winds are set to sweep in starting tomorrow morning, bringing a damp chill island-wide. In the flat coastal areas, temperatures could drop to lows of 14 degrees. [SOURCE]
