Hot, stormy weather in the forecast

THE temperature is expected to rise again this week even though the Chinese lunar calendar shows the summer heat should have passed.

Yesterday was Chu Shu, a date on the lunar calender that indicates the heat has passed. But the temperature didn't drop much as it reached 34 degrees Celsius yesterday.

The mercury is forecast to hit 35 degrees Celsius again this week and may rise even higher on Wednesday and Thursday, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said. The low will drop to about 25 degrees.

Thunderstorms will likely continue to soak the city this week under mainly cloudy skies, the bureau said.

The bureau said the temperature drop at the weekend was due to "a weak cold air front."

"The temperature will rise, especially on Wednesday and Thursday," said Chen Min, the bureau's chief service officer.
