No moon-gazing this holiday for some, weather bureau reports

No moon-gazing this holiday for some, weather bureau reports

Due to the weather, people in northern and eastern Taiwan might not have a good opportunity to enjoy the full moon over the Mid-autumn Moon Festival, the Central Weather Bureau (中央氣象局) predicted.
"People on the northern and eastern part of the island will not be able to see the moon all the time tonight due to a particularly overcast sky," CWB's weather forecaster Sean Tang said yesterday.
However, the weather will be sunny in central and southern Taiwan today and people will be able to enjoy the moonlight, the CWB noted. Tang predicted that it will be a little cool and there will be a good possibility of rain in the morning and evening in northern and northeastern Taiwan over the five-day holiday, which starts today and runs to National Double Ten Day.
People are advised to carry umbrellas or raincoats with them on October 10 if they plan to attend National Day celebrations or to participate in the planned "siege" of the Presidential Office aimed at deposing the president.
Tang said that scattered rains are expected on National Day in downtown Taipei as well as in northern Taiwan.
Over the entire five-day holiday in the northern part of the island, only on the weekend is it unlikely to rain, he said.
From today to next Wednesday, it will be cloudy and rainy in northern and northeastern Taiwan, while it will be warm and sunny in the central, southern and southeastern parts of the island, the CWB forecasted.
