Rain set to go away as city heats up

THE wet and stuffy weather is to end tomorrow with the city seeing higher temperatures into early next week.

It should be mainly sunny and cloudy from tomorrow with highs of more than 35 degrees Celsius and little rain, according to Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

Today should be cloudy to overcast with showers and thunder in parts of the city. The temperature should range from 25 to 32 degrees, the bureau said.

The intermittent rain is expected to stop tomorrow with the sky clearing under the influence of a subtropical high pressure area, the bureau added.

But whether the plum rain season is going to end still remains unclear.

"It depends on the intensity and stability of the subtropical high and the weather condition of the following days," said the bureau's Li Jinyu.

Typhoon Conson, which lashed the Philippines on Wednesday, was expected to land southern China today but should not affect Shanghai, Li said.

Meanwhile, the Shanghai Metro authority said yesterday they had established a team to prevent water leaks during the plum rain season.
