Rain forecast, but not enough to cool the city

IT'S going to be hot and thundery in the city this week, according to forecasters.

Frequent showers will not be enough to cool things down, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said, and temperatures are expected to rise to 35 degrees Celsius.

From the middle of the week conditions will be muggy with high humidity, the bureau said, and the high temperatures will continue to the weekend.

"It's normal for thundershowers and high temperatures to be on the same day during the plum rain season," said Zhang Ruiyi, one of the bureau's chief service officers. "The city may probably be extremely hot in the mornings and have showers in the afternoon."

Showers are more likely than heavy rain during the plum rain season, which usually lasts 25 days, Zhang said.

Some heavy rain is forecast for today with temperatures ranging between 24 and 28 degrees.

Tomorrow will see thundery showers with the temperature from 25 to 30 degrees.
