TAIPEI (CNA) -- Weather throughout Taiwan will be unstable and wet on Sunday, with rain warnings issued for western Taiwan and offshore islands, according to the Central Weather Bureau.

Brief showers or thunderstorms have been forecast for regions north of central Taiwan and Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu islands due to moisture introduced by a wet front from southern Taiwan, the bureau said.

Rain will ease during the day time, with highs throughout Taiwan ranging from 29-31 degrees Celsius and lows between 21 and 26 degrees at night and in the early hours of Monday, it forecast, adding that foggy conditions are expected in some areas of the islands of Kinmen and Matsu.

The bureau also urged the public to pay attention when passing through some mudslide-prone areas following Thursday's 6.1-magnitude earthquake.

As of 12 a.m., air quality across the country was mostly good or moderate, according to the Taiwan Air Quality Monitoring Network.
