Rain, gray to go away soon, allow sunshine

SHANGHAI is expected to endure another wet day or two but the weekend should be mostly dry, forecasters said yesterday.

Showers should diminish today and tomorrow, and the sky is forecast to turn overcast to cloudy tomorrow afternoon, said the Shanghai observatory. Sunday will be mostly cloudy, and the sun should show up again on Monday, the observatory said.

The high should gradually climb up over the weekend and reach 28 degrees on Monday.

"The rain belt is moving east over the weekend and the rain should gradually stop on Saturday," said Zhang Ruiyi, a chief service officer of the observatory.

"The temperature difference should also increase with the rising of the high, and residents might want to be aware of it."

Shanghai's cool weather should remain today, with a low of 18 degrees Celsius and a high reaching 23 degrees. The mercury is expected to reach 25 tomorrow.

The city's recent cool wave has stranded the city's entry into summer. Summer is announced when the average 24-hour temperature reaches 22 degrees Celsius for five consecutive days after li xia, a solar term of the Chinese lunar calendar that usually occurs around May 5.
