Showers later this week

SHOWERS are forecast later this week after the recent heatwave, Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said this afternoon.

The weather should be mainly showery from Friday to Sunday and the temperatures are expected to range from 23 degrees Celsius to 28 degrees, forecasters said.

Although southern China is suffering torrential rain and floods, Shanghai and the Yangtze Delta have not been affected, said Man Liping, one of the chief service officers.

"The cold fronts in the north were still active recently and the subtropical high remained weak, which cause the rain zone to stay in the south," Man explained. "Shanghai is on the northern edge of the rain zone so the rainfall was small despite the plum rain season."

Tomorrow will be cloudy, with a low of 23 degrees and maximum of 21.

Meanwhile, the temperature difference between day and night plus high humidity has caused morning fog.

The bureau issued an orange fog alert about 4:50am this morning warning that visibility in the Pudong New Area, Chongming County and Fengxian District was less than 200 meters.

The Wusong port authority said that about 150 ships changed their schedules, including some ferries to Chongming Island.

The alert was lifted at 7:43am when the fog started to clear and the water traffic in the city's ports was soon resumed.
