Temperatures to dip below 15 degrees Friday

Taipei, Dec. 2 (CNA) Despite sunny skies and warm weather in recent days, temperatures in northern Taiwan are forecast to fall below 15 degrees from Friday evening with the arrival of seasonal northeasterly winds.

The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said daytime highs in northern Taiwan could climb up to 26-27 degrees Wednesday and 30 degrees in central and southern Taiwan, but temperatures will begin dropping later the same day as a strengthening northeasterly wind approaches.

The strong seasonal wind will come closest to Taiwan Friday, when the temperature in Taipei are likely to dip below 15 degrees, the bureau said. Temperatures in central and southern Taiwan could hover between 19-24 degrees in the coming days.

Wu Der-romg, former CWB weather forecast center director and a professor of meteorology at National Central University, said temperatures across Taiwan could rise Saturday but chances of rain are high in northern and central Taiwan as another wave of cold air front will head south toward Taiwan later that day.
