Cold front to end balmy weather

A COLD front will bring temperatures down by 8 degrees Celsius today after the mercury hit 30.6 degrees yesterday, the year’s hottest day to date.

Most districts in Shanghai reported a high temperature exceeding 30 degrees yesterday. Suburban Songjiang District recorded the highest at 30.9 degrees, while the lowest of 29.6 degrees occurred in Chongming County.

Forecasters said today will be cloudy with the mercury ranging between 16 and 22 degrees. Tomorrow’s high will dip to 20 degrees with a low of 15 degrees. There is also a chance of rain tomorrow, according to meteorologists.

The long-range forecast calls for cloudy conditions with a warming trend early next week.

Monday’s high will hit 21 degrees while it will nudge up gradually to 24 on Wednesday. The low for the three days will fluctuate between 14 and 16 degrees.

The air was “lightly polluted” yesterday with PM2.5 particles peaking at about 110 micrograms per cubic meter, higher than the nation’s safe limit of 75. City environmental authorities said the PM2.5 level will likely drop this afternoon.

Meanwhile, a cold front is expected to sweep across northern China and bring temperatures down as much as 10 degrees.
