High ultraviolet index warning for Friday

Taipei, June 11 (CNA) The Central Weather Bureau warned Thursday of excessive or even dangerous levels of ultraviolet rays amid clear sky and high temperatures that are forecast for Friday. Temperatures for northern Taiwan will likely reach 35 degrees Celsius while those for central, southern and eastern Taiwan will be around 34 or 35 degrees, affected by the Pacific high pressure system, the bureau said. They reminded members of the public not to expose themselves under the hot sun, and remember to drink enough water to avoid heatstroke. Meanwhile, the CWB also forecast occasional thunderstorms in northern Taiwan and the mountainous areas across the island in the afternoon the following day. Brief showers or thundershowers were predicted for the off-shore islands of Kinmen and Matsu for Friday, as well. (By Wang Cheng-chung and S.C. Chang)
