Afternoon thunderstorms forecast to ease Monday in Taiwan

Taipei, June 15 (CNA) The violent thunderstorms that raged in Taiwan over the past weekend are likely to ease on Monday, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said Monday. Thanks to a Pacific high pressure system and less moisture, milder weather can be expected across Taiwan on Monday, although there are still chances of sudden downpours, lightning, thunder and strong wind gusts in some areas, forecasters said. The thunderstorms may occur only in northern and northeastern Taiwan and in mountainous regions, and are likely to be brief and less intense than on the weekend, the CWB said. Taipei experienced heavy rains and massive thunderstorms over the weekend, which caused flooding in several areas. (By Lee Hsin-Yin)
