A lit­tle ray of sun­shine?

Shanghai Daily - - FRONT PAGE - Ke Ji­ayun

SHANG­HAI is likely to see some light smog as the week be­gins, a re­sult of the stable weather brought by a dry and sunny Laba Fes­ti­val yes­ter­day, fore­cast­ers said.

The city air is fore­cast to be lightly to mod­er­ately pol­luted this morn­ing. But the smoggy con­di­tions will be soon cleaned up by the driz­zle ex­pected to­mor­row.

The driz­zle will linger through Wed­nes­day with a chance of some sleet. Skies will turn cloudy from Thurs­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the weather bureau, to­day will be warmer with the high in­creas­ing to 10 de­grees Cel­sius and a low of 4. Af­fected by the south-mov­ing cold air, to­mor­row will be cooler with the mer­cury drop­ping to a range of 5 to 9 de­grees. Wed­nes­day will be even colder with a high of 5 and a low of 3. Thurs­day and Fri­day the tem­per­a­tures will get higher and fluc­tu­ate be­tween 2 and 11 de­grees.

Yes­ter­day was marked by the tra­di­tional fes­ti­val Laba which falls on the eighth day of the 12th lu­nar month, when peo­ple usu­ally eat Laba por­ridge for good luck. It was also the first day of 2019 when down­town res­i­dents saw sun­shine.

Ne­ti­zens joked on­line that Shang­hai should change its name to Guiyang, which could lit­er­ally mean “pre­cious sun” in Chi­nese.

This week should give us a lit­tle more sight of sunny skies.
