Get ready for a soggy weekend

IT will be a wet and cool weekend, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said yesterday.

The forecast calls for light rain with temperatures ranging between 19 and 23 degrees Celsius today and tomorrow, the bureau said.

"Shanghai should be under the north edge of a rain belt with drizzly weather and it should be humid this weekend," said Kong Chunyan, a chief service officer of the bureau.

Forecasters said the high will be 29 degrees on Monday.

The bureau predicted the annual plum rain season would start earlier than usual this year. It normally begins in mid June. It also predicted 24 high-temperature days this summer, the same as last year. The bureau considers it a high-temperature day when the mercury reaches 35 degrees or higher.
