A COLD front arriving over the city eased pollution yesterday, as forecasters predicted a spell of warmer weather for the Chinese New Year.

Density of main pollutant PM2.5, fine particles that are especially hazardous, dropped from 280 micrograms per cubic meter at 4pm on Saturday to 80 micrograms within three hours.

For most of yesterday, levels remained below 40 micrograms  — falling to 9.3 micrograms at 11pm.

Perfect or good air quality is forecast today with the Air Quality Index between 45 and 65.

Today should be sunny, but give way to cloud tomorrow, with overcast weather and drizzle forecast for Wednesday and Thursday — Chinese New Year’s Eve.

However, sunshine is set to welcome the Year of the Horse on Friday.

The Shanghai Meteorological Bureau predicts rising temperatures this week.

Today they will range from 4 to 13 degrees, and by Wednesday the high will climb to the mid-teens with a low of 7 degrees.
