13 days of scorch­ing heat in June ties all-time record

The China Post - - LOCAL -

The Taipei weather mon­i­tor­ing sta­tion recorded a tem­per­a­ture of 35.4 de­grees Cel­sius at Tues­day noon, bring­ing the num­ber of days in June with tem­per­a­tures of 35 de­grees and over to 13 dur­ing the month, ty­ing an all-time high.

The 13 days of high heat in June tied the record set in 2011, the Cen­tral Weather Bureau said, and it pre­dicted that the record would likely be shat­tered in the re­main­ing seven days be­fore the end of the month.

A high pres­sure sys­tem in the Pa­cific will also be­come stronger next week when weather con­di­tions sta­bi­lize, fur­ther in­creas­ing the odds that the record will be bro­ken, the bureau said.

The high­est tem­per­a­ture recorded in Taipei so far this year was 37.1 de­grees Cel­sius on June 19, ac­cord­ing to the weather bureau.
