Temperatures forecast to dip below 20 degrees over weekend

Taipei, Oct. 28 (CNA) Temperatures across Taiwan are expected to fall below 20 degrees over the weekend as a cold front approaches the country, the Central Weather Bureau reported Wednesday.
The front will come close to Taiwan Friday, bringing strong northeasterly winds that could send the temperature plummeting by 6-10 degrees to around 24 degrees during daytime hours and to 19-20 degrees at night, the bureau said.
The bureau suggested that people should wear warm clothes and carry umbrellas until Nov. 3, when the front is forecast to leave Taiwan.
Meanwhile, the greater Taipei area in northern Taiwan, along with Yilan and Hualien counties in eastern Taiwan, could see sporadic rain, while the rest of the country will have partly sunny skies, it forecast.
Temperatures could reach highs of 30 degrees at around noon, but will fall to around 22-23 degrees later in the day across Taiwan, the bureau said.
