Weather to be cloudy, dry as mercury soars

NEXT week will be dry and cloudy, with high temperatures of about 33 degrees Celsius, forecasters said yesterday.

The mercury today will likely rise to between 23 and 29 degrees, they said.

The weather bureau issued a yellow alert about 4.30pm yesterday — suggesting thunderstorms — but this was withdrawn four hours later as the extreme weather mostly failed to materialize.

After moderate pollution on Thursday and Friday — when the PM2.5 density rose to 130 micrograms per cubic meter — air quality was much improved yesterday, with an air quality index of 54.

Monday and Tuesday are set to be dry and overcast with a high temperature of at least 30 degrees, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said.

Over the past two weeks, the city has been going through the plum rain season, which has pushed down temperatures.

Shanghai’s plum rain season usually lasts for about 20 days, typically ending around July 10.

The bureau, however, said it could not say whether this year’s plum rain season will end next week.
