Mercury down, humidity up

SHOWERS are forecast for much of this week, sending temperatures below 30 degrees Celsius, forecasters said yesterday.

Humidity is set to increase, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau, due to a westbound subtropical high and northbound warm moisture.

Rain should clear up on Wednesday, though remaining overcast, with wet weather returning late Thursday and lasting through Friday. Temperatures will be between 22 and 29 degrees.

Meanwhile, the city’s water consumption is set to increase this summer, with the highest daily demand expected to surpass 10 million cubic meters, officials said.

The downtown area will see a daily water demand of as high as 6.9 million cubic meters — 100,000 cubic meters more than last year.

This increase comes with the city’s expanding economic development, including the increasing population, according to the urban infrastructure operator Shanghai Chengtou Corp.
