Weather forecast for rest of week is hot and sticky

THE cooler weather is coming to an end and Shanghai is about to feel hotter and stickier, according to city forecasters.

Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said the city will see several showers this week and temperatures will be higher than last week. It will feel more sticky and stuffy under the combined influence of the heat and higher humidity, the bureau said.

Temperatures will rise to a maximum of 28 degrees Celsius and not fall below around 23 degrees.

From tomorrow night to Friday, the rain is expected to grow in intensity.

The city enjoyed cooler conditions last week with Saturday being the coldest day since the plum rain season began on June 17. The highest temperature recorded on Saturday was just 23 degrees.

Meanwhile, the city suffered slight pollution in terms of fine particles late yesterday.

The concentration of PM2.5, or particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter, started to fluctuate above 70 micrograms per cubic meter at the city's monitoring sites in Putuo District and the Pudong New Area from 1pm.

Readings exceeded 100 micrograms per cubic meter at the Pudong New Area's Zhangjiang site later in the day, Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center said. The national standard is 75 micrograms per cubic meter.

Center officials said pollution was high because of the lack of rain yesterday which normally would ensure the particles were removed from the air.

With more showers expected, air quality in the city will begin to improve from today.
