The current warm weather is forecast to last until Wednesday, when the mercury is expected to fall to below 20 degrees Celsius across Taiwan at night, according to the Central Weather Bureau.
Due to an approaching cold front that will begin to blanket Taiwan from late Wednesday, daytime highs in Taipei will drop from 24 degrees to around 12-13 degrees from Thursday to Sunday, the bureau said. Greater moisture and precipitation is expected on Thursday, when the temperature will begin to go down.
At the same time, nighttime temperatures in central and southern Taiwan will dip to 15-19 degrees, from the current daytime high of 25-28 degrees.
A daytime high of 29.4 degrees was recorded in Taipei Saturday, and the weather was forecast to remain the same in the capital city Sunday, although with cloudier skies. [FULL STORY]
