A frosty forecast for the weekend

THE weekend will be chilly, with the mercury not expected to inch upward again until next week, weathermen said.

For the next four days, the minimum temperature will stay below freezing: 2 degrees Celsius below zero in downtown and 3 to 4 below in the suburbs, said Shanghai Meteorological Bureau yesterday.

"The cold front will still come down from the north for the weekend, thus we won't expect it will get warmer quickly," said Li Jinyu, a forecaster with the bureau.

Today the high temperature will be 5 degrees, dropping to 3 tomorrow.

The highs, however, will start rising on Monday, forecasters said. They expect a high of 8 degrees on Monday, rising gradually to 11 on Thursday.

"Beginning Thursday, the minimum temperature will be rise to over the freezing point at last," Li said.

The only good news is that sunny to cloudy weather will dominate the coming five days under the influence of the cold front. This will help relieve the expected traffic burden this weekend as tomb-sweeping hits its peak.
