Forecast: Rain coming

TAKE an umbrella with you this week. It's going to be a wet one.

Rain will last at least to Friday, and thunderstorm may hit on Wednesday, weathermen said yesterday.

The mercury, however, will be higher than last week, getting as high as 24 to 26 degrees Celsius.

But it will be still cool in the morning and evening, with lows from 17 to 20 degrees, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau, which urged people who are going to the World Expo in the evening this week to take a coat with them.

This week's predicted rain is unrelated to plum rain, forecasters said, because the temperature and the position of a subtropical high are different from what's found in plum rain season, which usually starts in early June, and ends in early July.

"The standard of whether the plum rain season has come is rather complicated," said forecaster Fu Yi.
