Tropical storm forms as city cools off

A NEW tropical storm was formed yesterday in the western Pacific Ocean while Shanghai's weather should cool off after today for the rest of the week, meteorologists said.

Sanba, the 16th tropical storm this year, was formed at 8am yesterday about 1,530 kilometers southeast from Manila, the Philippines, the National Meteorological Center of China said yesterday. Sanba is expected to strengthen and to move northwest at 10 to 15 kilometers per hour. It should not affect coastal China in the next three days.

Shanghai is to be cloudy with scattered thundershowers and a high of 30 degrees Celsius, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau. The high should drop tomorrow to between 24 and 26 degrees in the following four days. It should be mostly cloudy.

"Cold fronts from the north were active recently," said Fu Yi, a bureau officer. "But the warm and wet currents should be strong and ... the city should experience some rain today and tomorrow."
