Some wet days on the horizon

EXPECT some light rain for most of this week, weather forecasters said yesterday.

It will be cloudy today with a high of 30 degrees Celsius, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said yesterday.

The rain will start tomorrow and continue for three days, the bureau said. The temperature will also drop with highs of 24 or 25 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday.

The low temperature will range between 19 and 21 degrees, forecasters said.

Earlier, meteorologists said the city will likely enter the annual plum rain season during the second 10-day period of this month. And during this period the extreme high temperature may hit 35 degrees.

Meanwhile, the bureau said summer hasn't arrived yet.

"We don't know whether the city will welcome summer this week, because the mercury is expected to drop," said Fu Yi, a bureau meteorologist.

According to the bureau, summer arrives when the daily average temperature reaches 22 degrees for five straight days.

The first of those five days is declared the first day of summer. Usually Shanghai summers start in late May.
