Summer is here, the second earliest since meteorological records started in the city.

Summer in the meteorological term was announced on May 7, the second earliest only to May 6 in 2009, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

Summer can be announced when the average temperature is above 22 degrees Celsius for five consecutive days after lixia, or Summer Begins, the seventh solar term in traditional Chinese calendar.

Summer was announced in the city on May 29 on average between 1981 and 2010.

The early summer makes spring extremely short this year, lasting 58 days, about two weeks shorter than usual, according to the bureau.

The city’s meteorological authorities lifted the yellow alert for thunder and lightning and the blue alert for rainstorm at 5pm.

Rainy weather is forecast for the next three days with stable temperatures.

Today should be overcast with drizzle and the temperature should range between 22 degrees and 26 degrees.

Showers are expected tomorrow and on Friday.

The highest temperature tomorrow will climb 1 degree, with a lowest temperature of 20. On Friday, the mercury will be between 20 degrees as a low and 26 degrees as a high.

A short respite from rain is expected on the weekend with Saturday cloudy to overcast.
