City's weather clearly will be nice for 5 more days

SHANGHAI'S sunny and clear weather should keep going for at least another five days because of stable meteorological conditions, forecasters said.

Although areas in southern China are suffering from typhoon Vicente, which has caused serious gusts and showers followed by floods and damage, the city's good weather will not be disturbed in the near future, according to the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

The weather in the next five days should be mostly sunny and cloudy, with the maximum temperatures of 34 to 35 degrees Celsius.

"With the influence of the subtropical high, the fine weather should continue," said Kong Chunyan, a chief service officer of the bureau.

"But with the currents at the south side of the subtropical high, which keeps sending winds to Shanghai from the sea, the city's maximum temperatures should not reach 37 or 38 degrees."

Despite high temperatures and plenty of sunshine, the weather these days should not feel stifling as the humidity should be stable at 50 to 70 percent, with sufficient southeastern winds to keep it comfortable.

Shanghai is getting closer to its typhoon season, in which frequent storms from the northwestern part of the Pacific Ocean approach and often bring heavy rain and gusts to the city.

"We are monitoring the atmospheric movement in the Pacific but so far no storm has been seen coming towards the East China Sea," Kong told Shanghai Daily yesterday.

Typhoons don't usually approach Shanghai until August or September, and this year the number of typhoons or storms that may affect the city has been estimated at around three, according to the bureau's early predictions.
