Rain, snow ... meteors

ENJOY the good weather while it lasts - because rain and snow are on the way, with the possibility of a white Christmas, according to city weather forecasters.

It will be warm and sunny from today until Friday, with high temperatures of 12 to 14 degrees Celsius, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau. But on Saturday the mercury will plummet, with minimum temperatures down to below 3 degrees on Saturday and freezing point on Sunday.

There will be sunny and cloudy spells before Saturday, and snow is expected to arrive late Saturday or early Sunday, forecasters said.

Yesterday, the city air was slightly polluted, the third level of a five-scale air quality assessment system.

Environment authorities said the inhalable particulate index was rather high. The wether bureau said that with temperatures rising, the city was affected by hazy conditions yesterday, contributing to air pollution. Air quality is expected to improve when the cold front hits.

Clear weather today and tomorrow will also be welcomed by Shanghai skywatchers, as it means a better chance of seeing a total lunar eclipse between 5pm and 6pm this evening and the Ursids meteor shower tomorrow.
