Taiwan to see sunny weather with chance of showers Tuesday

Taipei-The weather around Taiwan will be mostly sunny Tuesday, with chances of afternoon showers and thunderstorms in some parts of the country, the Central Weather Bureau forecast.

Under the influence of a large low pressure system east of the Philippines and strengthening northeasterly winds near Taiwan, the coastal areas of Keelung and eastern Taiwan should expect occasional showers.

Afternoon thunderstorms are expected for western Taiwan, particularly the central and southern parts of the country and mountainous parts of the north, according to the bureau.

Meanwhile, daytime temperatures will reach up to 34 to 35 degrees Celsius in western Taiwan and 33 degrees in the east, the bureau said.

The bureau also advised the public to avoid seaside activities in the coastal areas of northern and southeastern Taiwan and the offshore islands of Penghu and Kinmen, warning that strong northeasterly winds could be expected in those areas.

Fishing boats navigating in seas off northern and southeastern Taiwan and the northern parts of the Taiwan Strait should also be on alert for strong winds, the bureau added.
