Mercury set to rise after high of just 22.4

The mercury will climb to 30 degrees Celsius early next week, after dropping to a high of just 22.4 degrees yesterday, forecasters said.

Yesterday’s temperature was very rare for early September, said Man Liping, a chief service officer of the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

It was the lowest daily high temperature between September 1 and 6 in about 10 years, added Man.

The mercury dropped 3 degrees from Thursday due to rain, but should keep rising over the next few days and reach 30 degrees on Tuesday. 

Even though temperatures are set to rise, it’s advisable to keep an umbrella handy, as the city will have several rainy days, said forecasters.

These should last until Wednesday due to the influence of an upper trough and the active movement of cold and warm air, Man said.

Today should be overcast with rain, with the mercury ranging between 21 and 25 degrees.

The temperature is expected to rise slightly with a high of 27 degrees tomorrow.

Today marks Chinese solar term bai lu — or White Dews — traditionally indicating that temperatures are falling.

But there is still some time before Shanghai enters autumn in meteorological terms, when the daily average is below 22 degrees for five consecutive days, according to the weather bureau.
