Northeast seasonal winds bring cooler weather

Taipei, March 21 (CNA) Northeastern seasonal winds strengthened on Saturday afternoon, lowering the temperature by nine degrees Celsius, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said on Saturday. There will be showers in northern and eastern Taiwan, the CWB said. From March 23-25, rainfall in northern and northeastern Taiwan will last longer, the bureau said. There will also be some rainfall in central and southern Taiwan, which is expected to relieve the serious water shortage in the area, though whether the rain falls in catchment areas remains to be seen. For the duration of the northeastern seasonal winds, the temperature in northern Taiwan will reach a high of 18- 19 degrees Celsius, and a low of 14-16 degrees Celsius. Central Taiwan will experience a high of 24-25 degrees, and a low of 27-28 degrees. After March 26, the CWB expects the temperature to rebound to 23 degrees. (By Angela Tsai and Lilian Wu)
