TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — After the weekend, minimum temperatures are likely to crash below 20 degrees Celsius in northern Taiwan to reach 18 degrees as northeasterly winds gain strength, CNA forecast Friday (Nov. 1).

Following rain along the east coast, particularly in Yilan and Hualien, the weekend will bring clear skies with some periods of overcast weather, but that will change on Monday, according to CNA.

The northeasterly winds will also bring back the risk of precipitation and lower temperatures. While the low on Monday will be 18 degrees, maximum daytime temperatures in the north could still reach 25 degrees, low for Taiwan but comparable to summer in many Western European countries.

Southern regions like Pingtung will still record maximum temperatures close to 30 degrees next week, CNA reported.
