It going to be hot ... but no sunshine

TEMPERATURES are set to hit 37 degrees Celsius over the weekend, forecasters said yesterday.

And the mercury is predicted to stay high for the next few days under the influence of the subtropical high pressure, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

Today is forecast cloudy with thundershowers and temperatures ranging from a low of 27 degrees Celsius to a high of 35 degrees.

Tomorrow should be cloudy with a low of 27 degrees and a high of 37, the bureau said.

Showers are expected on Monday and Tuesday in some areas, the bureau added.

"With humidity remaining high, plus continuing high temperatures, the city should feel pretty hot and stuffy," a bureau statement said.

"We advise residents to stay indoors and drink plenty of water to prevent heatstroke."

Meanwhile, the Shanghai Water Authority said it is planning to build an underground river along Suzhou Creek to help divert flood and rainwater during heavy rain.

Officials added that work has already started on underground pump stations and tanks as part of a trial.
