Summer-like weather forecast for Tuesday


TAIPEI (CNA) – Warm summer-like weather is expected across Taiwan on Tuesday as temperatures continue to rise with northeasterly winds weakening, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said.

Daytime highs on Tuesday are forecast to reach 30-31 degrees Celsius in western Taiwan and 28 degrees in eastern Taiwan, the bureau said.

Temperatures are expected to drop to 22-25 degrees at night and early in the morning, according to the bureau.

On Wednesday, however, a wave of northeasterly winds will move into Taiwan, sending daytime highs down to 24-26 degrees in the northern and northeastern part of the island with chances of rain, the CWB said.

Temperatures are expected to rebound on Friday before a stronger wave of northeasterly winds arrives over the weekend when northern Taiwan could see the mercury fall to 19 degrees, the bureau added.
