Several days of warm sunshine forecast for city

Shanghai is expected to warm up, with temperatures climbing above 20 degrees Celsius again for the next few days as the cold front has gone, the weather authority said yesterday.

The fine weather should continue mostly sunny but with some clouds, and the mercury during the next five days should be stable, with lows of 8 to 12 degrees and highs in the low 20s, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

For today's last day of the Qingming Festival break, the high should climb to 21 degrees from yesterday's 16.3 degrees and the low should be around 12 degrees, the observatory said.

Tomorrow, the back-to-work day, is also forecast fine with more clouds and readings from 11 to 23 degrees.

Due to the latest cold front, a brief, heavy thundershower hit most parts of the city late Monday night, causing the observatory to issue a yellow thunder alert - lowest of the three-level system - and a blue gale alert - lowest of the four-level system - at 8:30pm on Monday. The two alerts were lifted by 9:20am yesterday.

No rain or thundershowers are expected all the way through next weekend, the bureau said.

Meanwhile, Shanghai's air quality improved with the departure of the cold front. The Air Pollution Index (API) dropped under 80 yesterday in most part of the city, indicating good air, and the situation should last for the next few days, said the Shanghai Environment Monitoring Center.

The city's air was "slightly polluted" because of dust from the north and local pollutants on Sunday, and it turned from "slightly polluted" to "good" on Monday and yesterday.
