Weather to turn showery following thundershowers Tuesday afternoon

Taipei--The weather would be mostly cloudy or sunny around the country Tuesday but the Central Weather Bureau warned of thundershowers in the afternoon, particularly in northern, northeastern Taiwan and mountainous areas in central and southern Taiwan.

Once the thundershowers began, there could be relatively heavy downpours so people in the mountainous areas should take extra care, the bureau said.

A weather front is expected to come close to Taiwan, bringing occasional brief showers to the western half of the country and the northwestern islands of Matsu, it said.

Highs on Tuesday could reach 32 to 34 degrees in western Taiwan and up to 31 degrees in the east, it added.

Air quality in Taiwan proper and the outlying counties are expected to be moderate to good Tuesday.
