More sunshine in the weekend forecast

A BLUE sky and white clouds are in the weekend forecast with day-time temperatures expected to remain hot at about 35 degrees Celsius, city meteorologists said.

With the strengthening of the subtropical high, the good weather is expected to continue today through Monday and ocean breezes should keep the air clear, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said yesterday.

The temperature will range from 28 to 35 degrees with mostly sunny skies during the period.

"After the typhoons, a low pressure system and high humidity led to poor air quality in the past few days," said Man Liping, a chief service officer of the bureau.

Yesterday was the last day of fu, or the hottest period of the summer, according to the Chinese lunar calendar. After fu, the weather usually starts to get cooler.

"The lunar calendar has some meaning and can give the big picture regarding weather trends but we still focus on the short-term forecast," Man said. "It will still be hot this weekend, but it will get cooler next week with some showers."
