The weather around Taiwan will be mostly cloudy and clear Sunday, but temperatures will likely drop from Monday night as seasonal northeasterly winds strengthen, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).
Daytime temperatures in northern Taiwan, Yilan and Hualien could hit 25-26 degrees Celsius Sunday, while central and southern Taiwan are likely to see highs of 28-30 degrees before the mercury begins to decline Monday, the CWB said.
Due to little moisture, the weather will remain mainly clear during Monday daytime before a new wave of seasonal winds gain strength later that day, sending the mercury down and bringing brief showers to northern and eastern Taiwan between Monday night and Tuesday, it said.
After Wednesday, the weather will turn cold and dry, the CWB forecast, adding that under the effects of seasonal northeasterly winds, temperatures are expected to plummet on Thursday to about 15 degrees in the north and the northeast and 16-18 degrees in other areas of Taiwan.
In addition, another cold front is expected to affect Taiwan from Friday and next Sunday and send the mercury down to 14 degrees in Taipei, weather expert Wu Der-rong (???) said.
