Rainy days ahead for Shanghai residents

SHANGHAI will have some rain today and there will be gales off the coast with the approach of a new typhoon, Haikui, forecasters say.

Haikui, which was about 800 kilometers southwest of the city last night, was moving northwest toward China's coastline at 15 kilometers per hour.

Stronger winds were already being felt in some parts of the city, especially in the Pudong New Area.

Fishermen have been warned of high waves on the East China Sea close to Shanghai and neighboring Zhejiang Province today.

The weather this week in the city is expected to be mostly rainy and cloudy, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

Temperatures will range from 25 to 32 degrees Celsius, the bureau said.

How much of an influence the typhoon will have on the city is not yet known.

The weather bureau said yesterday it would be keeping a close watch on the storm but its route was still uncertain.

The National Meteorological Center said it expected Haikui to bring heavy rain to Shanghai and adjacent Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces.

Shanghai residents enjoyed a sunny weekend after two earlier typhoons, Saola and Damrey, had weakened and made their way inland.

Tomorrow marks liqiu, or the beginning of autumn in the Chinese lunar calendar.

Meanwhile, due to the severe flooding in northeast and southern China, some train services were suspended yesterday but officials in Shanghai say services will gradually resume.

Air travelers are advised to check their flights because of the approach of Haikui.

There were no major delays reported over the weekend.
