Chill returns after short summer lease

THE temperature is expected to drop by 8 to 10 degrees Celsius today after yesterday’s summer-like 25 degrees, the highest so far this year.

According to the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau, a cold front will result in strong winds and rain until tomorrow. Sunny skies will be back at the weekend.

The bureau also issued this year’s first yellow alert for lightning yesterday.

After a gloomy and wet morning, the mercury rose to 25.3 degrees at the benchmark Xujiahui weather station in downtown.

Qingpu District was the warmest with a high of 28.8 degrees, followed by a reading of 28.5 recorded in Songjiang District. Temperatures in other areas ranged between 25 and 27 degrees.

The bureau said it’s not uncommon for the temperature to be above 25 degrees in March. On March 9, 2013, the temperature hit 29.5 degrees.

Today will first be dry and overcast but later turn drizzly with a low of 11 and a high of 18.

Tomorrow will see temperatures under 11 degrees with overcast skies.

The weekend will fluctuate between 7 and 15 degrees with a sunny Saturday, then a cloudy and partly drizzly Sunday.
