Wet end to the holiday forecast

The latter part of the weeklong National Day holiday in Shanghai is likely to be a bit wet, with drizzle forecast on Sunday and Monday.

It will be sunny or cloudy until Saturday under the influence of a high pressure area, with maximum temperatures likely to range between 24 and 26 degrees Celsius, the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said yesterday, and lows around 18 degrees.

Today will be mostly cloudy, with temperatures ranging from 19 to 24 degrees.

The city was hit by a cold front yesterday afternoon, accompanied by strong southern winds, and some eastern and northern areas had a little drizzle later in the evening.

Thanks to the southern wind, air quality in the city is expected to be excellent today, with the air quality index forecast to be under 50, the lowest level of the six-level scale, the bureau said.

The average AQI was 84 yesterday. The Dianshan Lake area in Qingpu District suffered from light pollution earlier in the day, with the index reaching 112 and PM2.5 being the main pollutant.

But the air quality was back to good last night with such tiny particulate matter, which can cause health problems, blown away by the strong winds.

The situation will continue to improve today, according to the latest Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center forecast.
