Fall set to return with big cooldown

LOCALS may want to gather heavier clothing tomorrow as a strong cold snap is expected to influence the city starting tonight, bringing temperatures down by 8 to 10 degrees Celsius, the Shanghai weather authority said yesterday.

Shanghai has been warming up with the mercury gradually climbing since last weekend. Today is forecast mostly cloudy with the high to reach 31 degrees.

But the warmth is going to an end abruptly with the cold front coming in, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau. Rain is forecast at night under the influence of the cold snap and the outer bands of Typhoon Nesat, the bureau said. Readings are expected to drop to as low as 18 degrees tomorrow morning, and skies will be drizzly to overcast. The high temperature should stay below 22 degrees, bringing the feeling of autumn, which officially began on September 19, back to the city.

"The cold front from the north has started to influence many areas of the country and should keep extending to the south," said Man Liping, a chief service officer of the bureau. "The weather should turn better after the cold front."

The weather during the National Day holiday, starting Saturday, will begin quite cool, with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures ranging from a low of 17 degrees to a high of 22, said the observatory.
