Mercury to plunge tomorrow

WARM weather today is set to give way to much colder temperatures tomorrow, forecasters said yesterday.

This is due to the influence of warm, wet currents from the southwest and a cold front from the north, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

These conditions will also bring showers over both days, said forecasters.

Shanghai's readings climbed up to 14 degree Celsius yesterday and are expected to reach 18 degrees today, but will plunge to 6 degrees tomorrow.

Fine weather should return to the city around Saturday, with temperatures stabilizing with the low around 4 degrees and a high of 14.

Low temperatures this year have affected spring blossoms and other early flowers.

Because of the chilly, gloomy winter, the blooming period has been delayed, and the best time to appreciate spring blooms will begin at the end of the month.

The Shanghai Botanical Garden said magnolia will bloom next week, followed by tulips, peach, peony and camellia.

Experts said magnolia usually blooms in early March.

The annual spring flower exhibition at the garden will be held from March 30 to May 16. More than 5,000 square meters of tulips and 20,000 peony shrubs will be in bloom to welcome visitors, officials said.
