Afternoon thunderstorms likely in some parts of Taiwan Saturday

Taipei--The Central Weather Bureau said Saturday that northern, central, northeastern and eastern Taiwan as well as mountainous parts of the country could expect thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Other areas could see cloudy to sunny weather, with daytime highs expected to hit 32-35 degrees Celsius, forecasters said.

The weather pattern could last into next Tuesday, when sporadic thunderstorms are likely islandwide, according to the bureau.

From next Wednesday to June 19, however, the weather will become unstable following the arrival of a stationary front -- a typical Plum Rain feature.

During this period, heavy rain and occasional extreme weather is possible across Taiwan, the bureau said.
