Warm, sunny weekend forecast in Taiwan

Taipei--The weather in Taiwan will be warm and sunny over the weekend before a new front arrives early next week, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said Saturday.

Due to warm air brought by southerly winds and decreased moisture, maximum daytime temperatures will reach 30-31 degrees Celsius in the western half of Taiwan and 28-29 degrees in eastern regions on Saturday, with slightly higher temperatures expected on Sunday and Monday, the bureau said.

A weak front, however, will affect Taiwan on Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing slightly cooler temperatures in northern and northeastern regions as well as showers in mountainous areas, according to the CWB.

By Thursday and Friday, temperatures in northern and northeastern Taiwan could drop to below 20 degrees as another front arrives and northeasterly winds strengthen, the bureau said.
