TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The weather in northern Taiwan is forecast to turn cool and wet on Monday (Oct. 5) due to strengthening seasonal northeasterly winds, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).

The congenial weather will end with the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday. Starting on Monday, northeasterly winds will strengthen, turning the weather in the north and northeast cool, with temperatures likely to drop eight to ten degrees, according to CNA.

The CWB forecast rain in northeastern Taiwan and mountainous parts of the Greater Taipei Area on Monday, with chances of heavy rains.

Isolated brief showers are expected in the north, east, and southeast. Partly cloudy weather is expected for the rest of the country, with isolated brief thundershowers in the mountains in the southern and central regions during the afternoon.

The cool weather is likely to continue through Thursday in the north and northeast, with brief isolated showers forecast for the region.
