Rain is expected across Taiwan on Sunday due to the effects of a weather front, with some areas in the eastern half and northeastern part of Taiwan to see heavy rain, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).

Daytime highs will hover around 17-18 degrees Celsius in northern Taiwan, with lows likely to drop to 14-15 degrees at night and the early hours of Monday, the CWB forecast.

In central and eastern Taiwan, the mercury will range between 21-25 degrees, while hovering around 25 to 27 degrees in the rest of the country during the day, the CWB said.

Meanwhile, as of 12:00 a.m., air quality across Taiwan was good or moderate, according to the Taiwan air quality monitoring index.

From Monday to Tuesday, the weather throughout Taiwan will become drier due to the effects of a cold continental air mass, with showers likely in eastern Taiwan and mountainous areas in the north, the CWB said.

From Wednesday to Thursday, another weather front will be approaching Taiwan, bringing rain again to the country, it forecast.
