Sleet started falling at 1:48 a.m. on the 3,886-meter mountain before snow began falling at around 9 a.m., according to Shei-Pa National Park management office.

It was the first snow in Taiwan this winter season.

Meanwhile, the Central Weather Bureau forecast cold and rainy weather will continue in northern and northeastern Taiwan Friday, with daytime temperatures ranging from 16-17 degrees Celsius.
