Mer­cury hits 2015 high of 34.5 de­grees C in Taipei

The China Post - - LOCAL -

The Taipei weather mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion recorded a tem­per­a­ture of 34.5 de­grees Cel­sius at 2:56 p.m. Mon­day, the high­est this year.

The high tem­per­a­ture was caused by clouds on the pe­riph­ery of a trop­i­cal de­pres­sion fly­ing low and block­ing cool sea air from flow­ing in, ac­cord­ing to the Cen­tral Weather Bureau.

Other weather mon­i­tor­ing sta­tions in the Greater Taipei area recorded highs of 33.9 de­grees in Ban­qiao Dis­trict in New Taipei, 33.5 de­grees in Tam­sui in New Taipei, 32.2 de­grees in Yi­lan, 32.2 de­grees in Hs­inchu, and 30.4 de­grees in Xinwu Dis­trict in Taoyuan.

Cen­tral Weather Bureau Direc­tor Cheng Ming-dean sug­gested in a post on his Face­book page on Mon­day that the high tem­per­a­tures were the re­sults of a warm sec­tor cre­ated be­tween the warm front that has been hov­er­ing over Tai­wan and a cold front that is ar­riv­ing.

“High tem­per­a­tures are com­mon in warm sec­tors,” Cheng said in the post.
