It's 'good riddance' to summer's scorchers

SHANGHAI'S sweltering heat of summer likely is gone, as no days with highs exceeding 35 degrees Celsius are forecast for September, forecasters said yesterday.

The Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said the temperatures this month should be comfortable, with the average around 25 degrees and the hottest remaining below 34.

The city has experienced 24 days with the mercury climbing over 35 degrees, which just met the prediction of the observatory in May.

Today is forecast sunny to cloudy with a low of 26 degrees Celsius and a high of 32. The fine weather should last through tomorrow.

The city has been enjoying comfortable temperatures for the past two weeks. The last time Shanghai experienced a scorcher was August 20 when the mercury hit 35.5 degrees, the bureau said.

August was unusually wet, with 243.7 millimeters of rainfall - 50 percent more than average, the bureau said. If September is normal, there should be eight to 11 rainy days and the total rainfall should range from 110 to 150 millimeters.
