Cooler days, rain coming

RAIN and cooler weather are expected this week as another cold front hits the city, weathermen said yesterday.

The temperature will drop under 20 degrees Celsius toward the end of the week, but the chill won't be as sharp as last week's, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

Yesterday's high was 27.5 degrees Celsius - the second highest temperature during the first 10-day period in November of the past 30 years. The highest was on November 2, 2003, when the thermometer hit 28.2 degrees, according to the bureau.

The warmth will depart, beginning today. Although the high will reach 25 degrees, the rain today may make people feel cool.

And starting tomorrow, the highs will drop to around 20 degrees - even 17 degrees on Friday. The lows this week will range from 16 to 18 degrees, forecasters said.

Rain is expected the whole week through at least Friday, except for Wednesday, when the sky is expected to be overcast, the bureau said.

Forecasters said yesterday's warmth was caused by a warm air mass which enveloped the city.

Because the cold front in the north was far away and relatively weak, the warm air mass moved rather slowly.

The relatively high humidity may have made people feel muggy and uncomfortable.

Forecasters reminded that although the temperature will not plunge this week, people should still be aware of the weather change, to prevent catching cold.
