Humid and wet for the rest of June

Shanghai is expected to have a dry start to the week but unfortunately today seems to be the only day with no rain for the rest of June, forecasters have said.

Yesterday, residents had a rare sunny day during the plum rain season as a storm belt moved southward to the Jiangnan area, the lower region of the Yangtze River Delta. 

Today will continue clear but starting tomorrow, the plum rain belt will move back. Between Wednesday and Sunday, it will be mostly overcast with showers at times.

The mercury will range from 21 to 30 degrees Celsius this week.

The 10th solar term xiazhi, or summer solstice, fell on Friday. After xiazhi, more days with convective weather are expected and heavy rains will become more frequent.

The wetness and heat will bring humid and sweltering conditions.
