Back to work ... and cold and rain

IF the thought of returning to work after the Spring Festival holiday wasn't bad enough for millions of city residents, it's going to be cold and wet as well.

The weather will turn overcast this morning, and drizzle or snow will fall on the city from late today to tomorrow, forecasters said yesterday.

However, after that the skies will clear with sunny - though cold - conditions predicted for Saturday.

For the next day or so, the maximum temperature will drop to around 10 degrees Celsius from yesterday's 17.2 degrees, and fall further to 5 degrees at the weekend, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau. Low temperatures will also fall, down to minus 1 degree on Saturday morning, forecasters said.

The bureau advised residents that it's not time for spring clothes yet, as the chilly weather may last a while.

Outside Shanghai, the cold wave will also cover most of the country over the next three days. Snowstorms will hit central and east China, including the western area of Yellow and Huaihe river valley and the northeastern area of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River.

Other places, such as the Xinjiang Uygur, Tibet and Inner Mongolia autonomous regions, northeast and northwest China, will also have rain or snow, the Central Meteorological Observatory said. Temperatures in those area could fall by as much as 8 to 10 degrees, it said.
