Indian summer forecast to last until Friday

The weather around Taiwan is expected to be hot and sunny until Friday as weakened northeasterly winds give way to an Indian summer, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said Tuesday.

Temperatures will reach between 30 degrees and 32 degrees Celsius across the island during the day on Tuesday, the bureau said.

On Wednesday and Thursday, daytime highs could rise to 34 degrees in northern Taiwan and 32 degrees to 33 degrees in central and southern Taiwan, according to the CWB.

The bureau forecast that northeasterly winds will strengthen again during the weekend, bringing cooler weather to the northern and northeastern parts of the country.

Meanwhile, the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) forecast that ultraviolet radiation across Taiwan will reach Level 7 Tuesday.

Readings between 6 and 7 mean that one can get sunburn after being exposed to the sun for 30 minutes, according to the EPA.

The EPA cautioned the public to avoid outdoor activities between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and to take protective measures if they must go outdoors.
