Temperatures to fall this week, nights as chilly as 16 degrees

A COLD front is expected today to cool things off by about 3 degree Celsius and bring with it stronger winds, weather forecasters said.

Today and tomorrow are expected to be sunny to partly cloudy but the sky is expected to turn overcast this weekend, according to the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

The temperatures this week should be stable with a low from 16 to 19 degrees Celsius and a high from 23 to 25 degrees. The temperature gap between day and night will be noticeable and residents should dress appropriately, the bureau suggested.

Shanghai temperatures have been descending slowly since autumn started on September 29. The bureau announced the season's start after average temperatures fell below 22 degrees Celsius for five conservative days.

Last month, weather bureau statistics indicate that temperatures were lower than the average of the past three decades.

While October has had some warm days, temperatures are now expected to drop faster to catch up with the historical average for the first half of this month, authorities said.

The air should be drier this week than in previous weeks. Officials reminded locals to be cautious with fire.
