Relief from heat expected after one more scorching day

SOME relief from the heat should be on the way later this week after one more scorching today as the mercury is forecast to start dropping below 35 tomorrow, said the city's weather authority.

Today should be sunny and partly cloudy and the maximum temperature is forecast to reach 35 degrees Celsius. The weather should start to change tomorrow with showers expected in some areas in the afternoon because of cold air spreading into the area from the north, according to the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

The high tomorrow should not exceed 34 degrees Celsius and should gradually fall after that. The high should drop to 31 degrees Celsius on Thursday, the bureau said.

"The subtropical high should weaken starting August 21 and the temperatures should gradually go down. Shanghai should have relief from the heat and the high should land at 31 or 32 degrees later in the week," said Kong Chunyan, a chief service officer of the bureau, in a press release yesterday. "Meanwhile, the city should experience showers in some areas due to the expansion of a weak cold front."

The high exceeded 35 degrees Celsius yesterday, making it the 23rd high-temperature day this year. Today is likely to be the 24th such day.
