Taipei, Jan. 14 (CNA) Under a cold air mass, Yushan on Thursday recorded
the lowest temperature of 8.1 degrees Celsius below zero since the start of winter, but did not get any snow because the cold air mass failed to bring sufficient moisture, the Central Weather Bureau said.
Since cold air masses are expected to approach Taiwan one after another over the next few days and create moisture in the air, Yushan could see snow at any time. The first snow of this winter fell on Jan. 3, according to the bureau.
The current cold air mass sent temperatures across Taiwan lower early Thursday morning, with the temperature recorded in Tamsui in northern Taiwan at 12.1 degrees, the lowest of the day in low-lying areas around the island. [FULL STORY]
