Drizzle aplenty ... and some snow too

FIVE straight days of drizzle, interspersed with the occasional flurry of snow, are forecast for this week in Shanghai.

High temperatures are unlikely to nudge 10 degrees Celsius, but the mercury should not drop below freezing either, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

The wet weather is caused by a warm and wet air current from the southwest, said officials.

Today and tomorrow, the high will be around 9 degrees, after the low around 5 degrees, forecasters said.

From Wednesday, with the arrival of a cold snap, snow may fall along with rain, but conditions should not be severe, forecast the bureau.

The maximum temperature will drop to around 6 degrees, while the minimum will range between 2 to 4 degrees.

The bureau said it is still difficult to forecast conditions for the weekend.

Forecasters also advised people traveling for the Spring Festival this week that most southern areas of the country will be hit by snow and rain, while snow and extreme cold may lead to freezing conditions in northern areas.
