City heat returns after brief respite

AFTER two days' relief from the heat due to the influence of Typhoon Soulik, Shanghai will swelter again from today until at least Friday.

Soulik lowered temperatures to around 34 degrees Celsius yesterday and a gale alert was issued by the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau at 7:59am yesterday.

However, Soulik is not expected to affect conditions in the city any more.

"It had weakened to a tropical depression at 5am this morning, with some cloud cluster left in northwestern Jiangxi Province, and will continue to weaken," Man Liping, a chief service officer at the bureau, said yesterday. Man said a strengthening West Pacific subtropical high was moving west and would bring higher temperatures.

Today is expected to be cloudy with temperatures rising to 37 degrees. By Friday, they will be reaching 38 degrees. Thunderstorms are likely.

Meanwhile, the strong winds brought by Soulik may result in higher prices, with vegetables and fruit planted in suburban areas having been damaged.
