Mercury rises despite a mix of sleet and snow

The moderately increasing temperatures seemed unaffected by the mix of ice, sleet and light snow that fell in the city yesterday.

According to Shanghai Meteorological Bureau, snow could be attributed to the remaining influence of colder air, which made the city’s morning temperature low enough to prevent the ice pellets from melting.

Chongming County and Jiading District recorded the lowest mercury of 0.2 degrees Celsius yesterday morning, while temperatures in the other districts mostly ranged between 0 to 2 degrees.

The bureau is predicting warm days as moist air is on its way back to the city.

The wet days will take a break on Friday and Saturday but the coming southwesterly moisture, clashing with the cold air, will bring drizzles back on Sunday and Monday.

There could be sleet and drizzle with a low of 3 and a high of 7 today. Overcast skies will turn cloudy on Friday with a slight increase in temperatures. Saturday will be cloudy too with mercury hovering between 4 and 10 degrees Celsius.
