The China Post - - LOCAL -

Tai­wan could see its cold­est April day since 1996 on Wed­nes­day as a cold air mass might send tem­per­a­tures plung­ing to lows of around 11 de­grees Cel­sius in ar­eas north of Chi­ayi, the Cen­tral Weather Bureau ( CWB) said on Mon­day.

Fore­cast­ers said that a cold mass in April 1996 caused a low of some 10 de­grees Cel­sius.

A cold front at this time of year is rather un­com­mon for Tai­wan, they said.

The cold air mass could start af­fect­ing Tai­wan from later Mon­day, the bureau said, adding that lows could drop to 12 de­grees in north­ern Tai­wan, 14 de­grees in cen­tral Tai­wan and 16 de­grees in south­ern Tai­wan.

Cloudy to sunny skies are ex­pected i sland­wide un­til Wed­nes­day, it said.
