Cooler, wet week expected

KEEP an umbrella handy as the city is expected to have a cooler, wet week, with a cold front possibly driving the Indian summer away, forecasters said yesterday.

The mercury will dip starting tomorrow with maximum temperatures dropping to below 30 degrees Celsius under the influence of a low-pressure trough and a cold front, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

Today should be cloudy with some thundershowers, and rain is likely to stick around until Thursday.

The high for today is forecast to be 30 degrees, and it is to drop to 27 degrees tomorrow, forecasters said. The mercury will range between 23 and 28 degrees till Thursday.

Local meteorologists said the city may not experience Indian summer this year. Qiulaohu in Mandarin, the Chinese version of Indian summer, is a spell of hot weather in autumn.
