Temperatures rising as storms fade

THE heat is on its way back to the city with the fading of the tropical cyclones, weather forecasters said yesterday.

Over the next few days it will be mainly cloudy with showers in the afternoon and maximum temperatures of up to 34 degrees Celsius, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

"People may feel hot and stuffy these days as the humidity is high, about 55 to 95 percent," the bureau said on its website.

"The city should be at the edge of a subtropical high and the maximum temperature should be at 33 to 34 degrees," said Man Liping, a chief service officer of the bureau.

Afternoon showers could be frequent this weekend.

The tropical storm Lion Rock landed in Fujian Province yesterday morning and moved west to Guangdong Province in the afternoon. It should not affect Shanghai further, the bureau said.

Meanwhile, the bureau said last month's average temperature, 30.9 degrees, and the average low, 30.4, were the highest in the city since records began.
