Sunny respite ends today as rain likely

THIS week's brief sunny respite from the foggy weather should end today with thick clouds and rain set to take over again, local weathermen said yesterday.

The mercury hit 16.3 degrees Celsius yesterday, the highest this year, amid bright sunshine. The highest temperature in the city was recorded in suburban Jiading District at 17.7 degrees, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said yesterday.

But such conditions are unlikely to appear again this week as wet air currents from the south become active. The weather from today until the weekend should be mostly overcast and rainy though temperatures remain warm.

"Shanghai will experience a more humid weather from Thursday to the weekend," said Zhang Ruiyi, a chief service officer of the bureau.

The high for today is forecast to be 11 degrees, with the mercury expected to reach 17 degrees tomorrow, the observatory said. Due to the increasing humidity, fog is likely to appear tomorrow and on Saturday.

The rainy spell should end on Sunday and the readings will begin to drop next week.

Shanghai's spring usually starts at the end of March.
