Rain forecast through till next Thurs­day, says CWB

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Rain is likely across Tai­wan through next Thurs­day due to mois­ture-bear­ing winds from the south­west, the Cen­tral Weather Bureau (CWB) said Fri­day.

The weather is ex­pected to be most un­sta­ble from Satur­day to Mon­day, with sud­den down­pours or thun­der­storms ex­pected is­land­wide, fore­cast­ers said.

Dur­ing that pe­riod, there could be “ex­tremely heavy rain” — de­fined as 200 mm of rain in a 24-hour pe­riod or 100 mm of rain in a three-hour time frame — the bureau said, es­pe­cially urg­ing peo­ple in cen­tral and south­ern Tai­wan to be pre­pared for the down­pours.

The weather may be­come milder in north­ern parts of the is­land start­ing Tues­day thanks to a grow­ing Pa­cific high pres­sure sys­tem, where only showers or spo­radic thun­der­storms are likely, ac­cord­ing to the bureau.
