Storm heads out, heat comes back to Shanghai

SHANGHAI is expected to heat up sharply this week, now that Tropical Storm Muifa has moved on.

The high is expected to stay above 34 degrees Celsius over the next few days and should hit 35 during the weekend, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said yesterday.

The weather is likely to remain mostly cloudy for the next several days with frequent thunderstorms in the afternoons. For today and tomorrow, highs of 34 and lows of 27 are forecast.

Yesterday was Liqiu, or the beginning of autumn, the 13th solar term of the ancient Chinese calendar. But the city is still far from meteorological autumn, officials said. The scorching heat should last into next week.

Meanwhile, city airports said passengers who were delayed by the typhoon over the weekend had all left the city by yesterday. But as Muifa moved north, flights from Shanghai to Shandong and Liaoning provinces were delayed or canceled yesterday.
