Cold weather expected to last into Thursday: CWB

Taipei--Taiwan will continue to see cold weather through Thursday under the influence of a cold air mass, with highs below 20 degrees Celsius island wide, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said on Tuesday.

Lows in northern, central and northeastern Taiwan could range from 13 to 15 degrees, while other areas are likely to see temperatures of 16-18 degrees during the period, forecasters said.

In addition, showers are likely in northern and northeastern parts of the country, with mostly cloudy or sunny skies elsewhere, the bureau said.

The weather will be much warmer from Friday, when maximum temperatures are expected to rise to 23 degrees in northern Taiwan, 26 degrees in central areas and 27 degrees in the south, according to the CWB.

The moderate weather should continue into Sunday, when increasing seasonal winds could bring slightly cooler weather in northern and northeastern regions, it said.
