Temperature set to drop as cold front hits city

The mercury is expected to drop today to a low of 12 degrees Celsius because of a cold front, making for a chilly outing, forecasters said.

The cold air hit the city yesterday morning with northerly wind gusts and light rains.

With the temperature down by nearly 10 degrees — to 17.3 degrees — residents were forced to cover themselves up with extra layers of clothes.

The cold front is likely to remain throughout the week with skies mostly overcast followed by light drizzles.

“The city will stay cold for two days or more due to the domination of cold air, but a mercury drop as sharp as Sunday’s is unlikely,” said Fu Yi, a chief service officer at the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

Friday is likely to be a little bit warmer as the high will reach 18 degrees under cloudy skies.
