TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Temperatures will rise to around 30 degrees Celsius across Taiwan on Sunday, Feb. 3, with weather conditions forecast as cloudy to sunny, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) report.

Temperatures across Taiwan reached above 23 and 24 degrees on Saturday, with even warmer temperatures expected on Sunday, with 30 degree forecast for across most of Taiwan.

However, the temperature will likely drop to around 19 degrees at night in the west, the CWB said, warning the public that the temperature difference between day and night may be as much as 10 degrees.

On Feb. 4, the Lunar New Year's (LNY) Eve, and Feb. 5, the LNY Day, a cold front will pass through Taiwan. Strong northeasterly winds are expected, sending temperatures lower in the north and northeast and bringing light rain with some occasional showers in other regions, the CWB said.

On Feb. 6, northeasterly winds will decrease and temperatures are expected to rise again, according to the bureau. The weather forecast for most Taiwan is cloudy to sunny from Feb. 6 to Feb. 8, with the only exception being the northeast, where occasional showers are expected.

On Feb. 9, when the LNY holiday is drawing to an end, northeasterly winds are expected to start affecting Taiwan again, lowering temperatures in the north and northeast and brining rain as well, the CWB said, adding that cloudy weather is forecast for the rest of the island.
