Rain to get heavier, cold snap expected from Wednesday

More rain is on the cards for the coming three days, while the mercury is set to drop on Wednesday, meteorologists said yesterday.

Today will see only light showers and temperatures of between 7 and 9 degrees Celsius, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said. But the situation will worsen overnight leading to moderate to heavy rain tomorrow due to warm and humid air from the southwest hitting a cold front.

Cloudy skies are forecast for Wednesday, while a cold front from the north will push temperatures down to 3 degrees on the day, from 5 degrees tomorrow.

The clouds will remain through Thursday and Friday, with temperatures expected to fluctuate between 2 and 9 degrees.

Today’s air quality is forecast to be good in the morning and excellent in the afternoon, the Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center said.

The National Meteorological Center said yesterday that rain and snow will sweep across large parts of the country in the coming three days. This could disrupt the travel plans of the large numbers of migrant workers and students expected to return from their Spring Festival holidays, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in southwest China and regions to its east are set for more snow, while blizzards are forecast for tonight and tomorrow in Anhui Province, the center said.
