Springtime in Shanghai

ASIDE from a smattering of showers expected on Wednesday, Shanghai is set to enjoy spring-like conditions this week, forecasters said.

Tomorrow will start with fog in waterfront areas, but this should clear in the afternoon, with temperatures ranging from 4 to 13 degrees Celsius. A mix of sun and clouds will continue on Tuesday, which will see a similar low, but a high of 14 degrees.

On Wednesday, a colder air mass from the north is forecast to hit the city, which will produce some rainfall, though temperatures should range from 9 to 15 degrees.

Thursday will see a slight drop in temperature to about 11 degrees, but the mercury should climb back to 14 degrees on Friday.

Further afield, the heavy smog that has covered Beijing recently should be dispersed by a cold front on Tuesday, the National Meteorological Center said. The local weather bureau, however, said it is still unsure if Shanghai will be affected.

“The formation of smog is usually due to a high volume of particles in the air coupled with dry weather conditions,”Zhang Ruiyi, chief service officer at the city’s meteorological bureau, said.

“If there are stronger winds or rain, the smog will be less likely to form,” he said.
