Warm but drizzly week ahead

A MIXTURE of wet and warm days is on the cards this week, though the highs will vary by only a few degrees, forecasters said.

A light smog shrouded the city yesterday morning, as the density of PM2.5 particles rose past 140 micrograms per cubic meter at 5am, almost double the national standard of 75. But the poor air soon gave way to brilliant sunshine and downtown areas witnessed a high of 19.5 degrees Celsius.

The top temperature today is likely to be a warm 17 degrees as skies turn overcast, though some showers are expected in southern parts of the city.

The high will climb back to 18 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday, which will also see some light showers.

The lows for Monday through Wednesday will be about 11 or 12 degrees, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.

Thursday will be warmer, with a high of 19 degrees and a low of 13 degrees, though the mercury will drop back to a high of 18 degrees on Friday and a low of 10 degrees, forecasters said.
