Clear skies set to continue

SHANGHAI residents will continue to enjoy good air for about three days due to the impact of a subtropical high with the maximum temperature around 34 degrees Celsius.

The city enjoyed a rare blue sky and white clouds over the weekend.

"The subtropical high controlling the city brought strong southeast wind that blew fresh air from the sea to the city," Lin Chenyuan, chief forecaster of Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center said.

The rainstorms that lashed large swathes of northern and southwestern China have no direct connections with the city's clear days, said Wang Qian, an expert with the center.

The average density of PM2.5 - particles 2.5 microns or less in diameter - was below 20 micrograms per cubic meter today in the range of "good" air quality, according to the Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center's website.

China's national standard is 75 micrograms per cubic meter.

The monitoring spot in Yangpu District reported the highest PM2.5 density of 22, still "good" according to the Chinese standards.

The Pudong New Area had the best air quality this morning with PM2.5 density at only 8.9.
