Rainy weather forecast for Double Ten holiday

Taipei, Oct. 7 (CNA) Rain is likely across the country during the Oct. 9-11 Double Ten holiday weekend due to an approaching weather front and increasing northeasterly winds, the Central Weather Bureau said Wednesday. From Thursday, the sunny and warm weather Taiwan has seen over the past week could give way to much cooler and more humid conditions that might dominate the national holiday, forecasters said. The weather fluctuation could have the strongest impact on northern and northeastern Taiwan, where continuous rain, sometimes heavy, is expected, according to the bureau. Daytime high temperatures in those areas could drop by four degrees Celsius to some 27 degrees, while other parts of the country could see highs of between 29 and 31 degrees. The rain could start to ease up Oct. 11, when mostly cloudy weather with chances of showers will be likely, it said. (By Lee Hsin-Yin)
