Cold, wet weather in northern Taiwan to last into Feb. 27: CWB

Taipei--The current cold and wet weather in northern and northeastern Taiwan is likely to continue into Feb. 27, while another wave of cold air could hit Taiwan March 2, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said Friday.

Lows are expected to hover around 12 degrees Celsius in those areas between Friday, Feb. 24 and Feb. 27, with rain likely to make the weather feel even colder, the bureau said.

Central and southern Taiwan could experience lows of around 15 degrees during the same period, but chances of rain there might be slightly lower than in the northern part of the country, bureau data shows.

There could also be snow in mountainous area on Friday and Saturday thanks to the strong cold air mass and moisture moving in from southern China, forecasters said.

The weather could turn milder between Feb. 27 and March 1, the CWB said, but warned that another wave of cold air could reach Taiwan on March 2, bringing temperatures down again.
