Showers forecast to keep the heat down

REMEMBER your umbrella, the next few days are going to be showery in the afternoon, forecasters said.

Temperatures should drop a little with highs below 35 degrees Celsius from this weekend into next week, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

"With the weakening of the subtropical high, the temperature should drop a little around Saturday," said Fu Yi, a chief service officer of the bureau.

Today will be cloudy with temperatures ranging from 27 to 34 degrees. Tomorrow should be cloudy to showery with temperatures between 27 and 33 degrees.

Yesterday was the traditional Chinese da shu, 12th of the 24 solar terms, literally great heat, indicating the hottest period of the year.

However, yesterday was not classified a high-temperature day as the temperature did not exceed 35 degrees, peaking at 34.4 in downtown areas.

Meanwhile, this week's heat following the plum rain season pushed up the price of vegetables in the city.

One seller said there were limited stocks of vegetables available as excess produce easily went bad in such weather.

The wholesale markets are trying to find more suppliers from other provinces.
