Rain seen today, drop in mercury tomorrow

Shanghai finally saw blue sky yesterday afternoon due to a southeast wind after the city suffered heavy pollution on Thursday and yesterday morning.

Rain is forecast today, with temperature at a high of 26 degrees Celsius, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said. But it warned the temperature should tumble to 17 degrees tomorrow due to a cold front, with gales and rain expected. 

Monday is expected to be cloudy, with the mercury hovering between 12 and 15 degrees. Tuesday should see the return of rain with temperature similar to Monday’s.

Wednesday should also be overcast to rainy, with temperatures between 13 and 16 degrees.

The Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center yesterday warned of air pollution at 10am after reporting PM2.5 density of 188.8 micrograms per cubic meter at 9am.

But the air quality improved due to the wind and the PM2.5 density then fell rapidly. At 2pm, the PM2.5 density was only 46.1 micrograms per cubic meter before falling to 40.3 micrograms per cubic meter at 5pm.
