Taipei--Taiwan will continue to see high temperatures in the days ahead due to a strengthening Pacific high pressure system and the decreasing likelihood of rain, the Central Weather Bureau said Friday.
As the high pressure system extends westward to Taiwan, more stable weather is expected islandwide, with sunny and hot weather likely in the mornings during the next week, forecasters said.
There remain chances for thunderstorms in the afternoon, but only in the northern, central, northeastern and mountainous parts of the country, according to the bureau.
Daytime highs could hit 32-35 degrees Celsius across Taiwan, the bureau said, and it urged the public to take precautions to prevent heat stroke.
WeatherRisk Explore Inc. President Peng Chi-ming (???) said maximum temperatures during the next week could reach even higher, to 35-37 degrees, and the lack of rain could make it feel hotter at night.
