November the driest on record

SHANGHAI is experiencing an unusually dry November, with rain at a record low, weathermen said yesterday.

Total precipitation this month was 0.8 millimeters by Wednesday, far less than the average rainfall of 54.3mm for November, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

According to the city's 137-year-old meteorological records, the lowest precipitation experienced in Shanghai in November occurred in 1988, when there was only 2.2mm of rainfall. That record is set to be broken if there is little rain during the rest of the month, the bureau said.

Drizzle is forecast for the last two days of the month, Monday and Tuesday. So far there have only been three days with rain this month.

The fine conditions should continue over the following three days, with forecasts of mainly sunny to cloudy weather, the bureau said. There will be a high temperature of around 15 to 18 degrees Celsius and a low of about 7 to 8 degrees.
