Hot weather set to stay through July 1: bureau

The China Post - - LOCAL -

The hot weather Tai­wan has seen over the past week is likely to con­tinue into at least July 1 due to a strong Pa­cific high pres­sure sys­tem and de­creas­ing mois­ture, the Cen­tral Weather Bureau (CWB) said Satur­day.

Highs across Tai­wan could reach 36 de­grees Cel­sius, the bureau said, adding that Foehn winds — warm and dry gusts that de­scend the shel­tered side of moun­tains into val­leys — could send tem­per­a­tures soar­ing even higher in south­east­ern Tai­wan.

Mostly cloudy to sunny skies are ex­pected is­land­wide, but af­ter­noon thun­der­storms could take place in north­east­ern Tai­wan and moun­tain­ous parts of north­ern and cen­tral Tai­wan, the bureau said.

The heat could ease up from July 2, with highs drop­ping by 1-2 de­grees, the bureau said.
