Temperatures will gradually reach highs of 23-26 degrees Celsius until Wednesday before plunging to around 13-15 degrees Thursday as northeasterly winds regain their momentum, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).
CWB forecaster Kuan Hsin-ping (???) told CNA Sunday that the northeasterly winds currently affecting the weather in Taiwan were expected to weaken starting Monday.
Temperatures are expected to rise until Wednesday with highs of 23-24 degrees in northern Taiwan and 25-26 degrees in central and southern Taiwan, Kuan said.
Lows across northern Taiwan will still be around 13-15 degrees on Monday and will gradually rise to 15-17 degrees over the next two days, he said.
Keelung and the northern coast, eastern Taiwan, and the Hengchun Peninsula in southern Taiwan will experience brief rainfall on Monday, while sporadic rainfall will be seen in the Greater Taipei area along with cloudy to sunny weather in other parts of the country, according to Kuan.
A weather front on Wednesday is forecast to expand the range of rainfall, with rain in the northern part of central Taiwan and sporadic rain in the south, Kuan said.
He added that humidity would be relatively high for around one day.
Northeasterly winds will increase between Thursday and Jan. 9, with temperatures expected to gradually drop to lows of 13-15 degrees in various places, including around 15-16 degrees in Taipei, Kuan said.
Fog and low clouds will affect visibility in central and southern Taiwan on Tuesday, and also western Taiwan on Wednesday, Kuan added.
