Lowest temperature this winter recorded in Taoyuan

Taipei, Jan. 24 (CNA) The lowest temperature so far this winter -- 7.1 degrees Celsius -- was recorded in suburban Taoyuan City Saturday morning, the Central Weather Bureau said. Due to a radiative cooling effect under clear skies overnight, temperatures around Taiwan early Saturday remained low even though a cold front covering Taiwan in the past two days was beginning to weaken, the bureau said. The coldest spot was the coastal Xinwu District of Taoyuan City, followed by Banqiao at 8.5 degrees, Hsinchu at 9.1 degrees and Taichung at 9.4 degrees, the bureau said. Mercury was to rise quickly during the day, however, with highs around 24 degrees in the north, 24-25 degrees in central Taiwan, 25 degrees in the south and 21 degrees in the east, the bureau said. Generally warmer weather is forecast for Sunday and Monday. Weather conditions are expected to be mostly sunny or cloudy, with possible brief local showers only in eastern Taiwan and mountainous regions in the north. (By Angela Tsai and Jay Chen)
