Chilly days, rain, snow in forecast for this week

A GRADUAL cool-down is coming this week, with snow forecast for late in the week, despite the beginning today of Lichun, the start of spring in the Chinese lunar calendar.

Today's temperatures will range between 8 and 12 degrees Celsius with light haze in the morning and a chance of rain tonight, forecasters said.

There is still a chance for rain tomorrow, but as a cold front moves in, it will begin to taper off. The high is expected to drop to 10 degrees Celsius and the low to 6 degrees tomorrow, with a high of 7 and a low of 3 on Wednesday, then fall even more before the weekend.

With the influence of warm moist air and a strong cold front, Shanghai will see some heavy rain and snow on Thursday and Friday.

There will be a significant temperature drop between Thursday and Saturday, the eve of Chinese New Year. Moderate snow is forecast on Thursday and heavier snow on Friday, with the low hovering at minus 1 or 0 degree, according to Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

Light snow is forecast for Saturday, but it should stop in the afternoon or evening, officials said.

Sunday, the first day of the Year of Snake, will be cloudy.

Pollution has dropped, with air quality rated excellent yesterday with strong winds from the south.
