Warmer Saturday, with cooler weather forecast next Tuesday: CWB

The Central Weather Bureau said Saturday that a cloudy to sunny sky with warmer temperatures could be seen in most parts of the country throughout the day, but cooler weather is likely from next Tuesday due to seasonal winds from the northeast.

Maximum temperatures could hover between 27-29 degrees Celsius in northern and northeastern Taiwan Saturday, and 30-32 degrees in central Taiwan and southern Taiwan, with lows in all areas ranging between 20-22 degrees, the bureau said.

Except for eastern Taiwan and mountainous areas in greater Taipei and southern Taiwan, the rest of the country could see a cloudy to sunny sky, forecasters said.

However, the relatively stable weather could give way to rain starting next Tuesday, sending lows down to 19 degrees in northern Taiwan, according to the bureau.

The mercury drop could be more pronounced on Wednesday, with daytime highs down by another 4 to 5 degrees to around 22 degrees in the region.
