City likely to shiver through sleet and rain

Sleet is likely to hit the city tomorrow with cold front from the north while rain will drench the city all through next week, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said yesterday.

But local residents will at least enjoy a good day today before the bad weather arrives. The rain that hit the city for the last two days will leave temporarily and the temperature will also rise slightly to the highest of 7 degrees Celsius.

The temperature will then drop to a low of 3 degrees and a high of 6 degrees tomorrow as a cold front from the north brings rain and even sleet to some areas of the city, said Wu Rui, a chief service officer with the weather bureau.

Rain and heavy cloud will linger over the city through next week with the mercury ranging between 2 and 5 degrees on Monday and Tuesday. However, the low will climb back to 4 degrees and the high to 10 degrees on Wednesday though it will still be overcast.

The city’s air quality was good and will remain satisfactory over the weekend as the rain cleared the pollutants.

The Air Quality Index maintained at around 28 in the city yesterday that ranked as the best level according to local standards, the Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center said.

The index will remain below 100 the whole day today, which is within the level of “good.”
