After a week of heavy rainfall, Taiwan will embrace dry days and warm temperatures next week starting Wednesday and will last till at least Friday, according to the latest Central Weather Bureau (CWB) forecast.
Due to the effects of the outer periphery of Typhoon Haima, parts of Taiwan are still expected to see heavy rain throughout the weekend. The weather bureau on Friday morning issued heavy rain and torrential rain warnings for six cities and counties in Taiwan, including Keelung and New Taipei Cities, as well as Yilan, Hualien, Taitung, and Pingtung Counties.
The CWB also warned of strong wind gusts throughout the day for all parts of the island except Taipei, Chiayi Cities, and Nantou County.
The latest forecast also indicates that an area of high pressure will arrive in the nation next Wednesday, bringing a great deal of sunshine and high temperatures to the island. The brief warm spell is expected to last until Friday, the forecasters said.
The bureau reminded the public on precautions against heat stroke and overexposure to the sun due to high UV level expected next week. [SOURCE]
