It’s summer as mercury set to climb

The seventh solar term Lixia, or Summer Begins, started yesterday, the final day of the five-day May Day holiday.

It indicates rising temperatures and more rain in the Jiangnan areas (regions south of the Yangtze River).

The maximum temperature is expected to increase from 24 degrees Celsius today to 32 degrees on Sunday, while the lowest will rise from 16 to 20, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

Although light rain is forecast on the first working day after the holiday, the rest of the week should be dry.

Air quality will be good today but slightly polluted tomorrow and on Saturday due to high concentrations of PM10 particles and ozone, according to the Shanghai Ecology and Environment Bureau.
