Northern Taiwan could see heavy rain; warm weather for next week

Taipei, Oct. 31 (CNA) Residents in northern Taiwan could see heavy rain along with cool weather Saturday but the Central Weather Bureau expects temperatures to rise up to 30 degrees Celsius next week. Due to increasing seasonal winds, the weather bureau cautioned of gusty winds in coastal areas in northern Taiwan. Precipitation could be most pronounced along the northern coast, in mountainous areas in greater Taipei and Yilan County in the northeast, forecasters said. Rainfall in those regions could accumulate to over 80 millimeters in 24 hours, or over 40 mm in one hour, the bureau warned. Temperatures in northern Taiwan could remain 20-25 degrees Celsius until next Monday, when seasonal winds begin to weaken, it said. However, a warmer and drier weather is in the forecast from Tuesday, and daytime highs could even hit 30 degrees across the country next Friday, according to the bureau.
