Shang­hai set to wel­come win­ter to­day

Shanghai Daily - - TOP NEWS - Ke Ji­ayun

SHANG­HAI is likely to en­ter the win­ter sea­son to­day, with the pos­si­bil­ity of snow over the week­end.

Un­der the com­bined in­flu­ence of a cold front and warm south­west­erly mois­ture, there will be sleet in the city tonight un­til Sun­day morn­ing, the Shang­hai weather bu­reau said.

It is likely to snow 3-5 mil­lime­ters in the city’s western parts, in­clud­ing Jiad­ing, Qingpu, Jin­shan and Songjiang dis­tricts from to­mor­row night to Sun­day morn­ing.

Snow cover of 1-2 cen­time­ters is also ex­pected in some ar­eas. But it is un­likely to stay as the ground tem­per­a­ture is still high and the snow is likely to melt.

Skies will be over­cast and it will rain again on Sun­day and Mon­day.

The mer­cury will range be­tween 4 and 8 de­grees un­der driz­zly and sleety skies to­day.

To­mor­row and Sun­day will be colder. The low­est tem­per­a­ture in down­town will drop to 3 de­grees Cel­sius, while the low in sub­ur­ban ar­eas will be 0-2 de­grees.

The tem­per­a­tures will bounce back with a low of 5-6 de­grees next week and a high of 10 on Mon­day and Tues­day, with in­ter­mit­tent driz­zles.

The wet con­di­tion will come to an end late next week.
