Fewer hot days expected this summer

SHANGHAI expects fewer hot days during this summer.

The city will probably endure between 15 and 24 days with temperatures above 35 degrees Celsius, compared with the average 26 days in the past five years, today's Shanghai Oriental Radio reported.

Less rain is also forecast this summer, with forecasters at a work conference yesterday predicting 790mm will fall during the World Expo from May to October, the report said.

But rainfall during the annual Plum Rain season is forecast to be 20 percent heavier than usual. This year the rainy season is expected to start from mid June and end in early July.

Meanwhile, one or two typhoons are forecast to affect Shanghai this summer.
