Rainy days ahead, but sun is also on its way

The weather is set to be warmer and less humid on Friday, as people celebrate Valentine’s Day and the Lantern Festival, local forecasters said.

According to the Xujiahui Observatory, which sets the benchmark, the temperature in Shanghai yesterday morning fell to minus 2.2 degrees Celsius, its lowest level this winter. Across the city, the mercury was recorded at between minus 2 and minus 3.2 degrees, with the coldest reading reported in Chongming County.

With the help of strong winds, Shanghai’s air quality index (AQI) remained under 50 for most of yesterday. Air quality is expected to worsen a little today due to a higher concentration of PM2.5 particles triggered by warmer temperatures, but is still classified as “good.”

The AQI is expected to be between 55 and 75 in the morning, with the possibility of readings below 50 in the afternoon after some rain.

Yesterday’s cloudy skies are forecast to give way to more overcast and rainy weather today, with winds gusting at 38kph. Rain is expected tomorrow, but the clouds are expected to clear on Friday. The drier and brighter weather will continue into Saturday before the rain returns on Sunday.

Today’s temperatures are likely to be between 2 and 7 degrees, before rising to between 4 and 9 degrees on Thursday and Friday. Saturday and Sunday will see a return to double-digit highs and lows of 4 to 5 degrees.
