Autumn has arrived ... last Sunday

IT'S autumn, and that's official.

The city's weather bureau said yesterday that the average temperature had been below 22 degrees Celsius for the fifth day in a row. That made last Sunday the beginning of autumn, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

The bureau forecast that this month should be a "golden autumn" month with mainly refreshing and comfortable weather making it the best time for traveling.

But the bureau also said temperatures could drop to as low as 14 degrees next Tuesday with the arrival of a cold front.

Today will be sunny to cloudy with temperatures from 20 to 26 degrees.

Rain is forecast tomorrow with temperatures from 19 to 24 degrees.

The bureau said it was the first time the city had entered autumn in September for the past 10 years.

The announcement of autumn marked the end of a 108-day summer this year, which was less than the average 117 days over the past 30 years, the bureau said.
