TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A weak weather front will sweep across Taiwan today (April 4), bringing occasional showers to the north coast, mountainous areas in the north, and the eastern side of the country, according to meteorologist Daniel Wu (吳德榮).

Temperatures tonight will drop to 15 degrees Celsius in low-lying areas, he said, though sunny weather is predicted across Taiwan from tomorrow, with comfortable daytime temperatures in the north and hotter weather in the south. With lows of 14 to 15 degrees expected in low-lying areas at daybreak, diurnal variations could range up to 15 degrees.

Partly clear skies are expected on Wednesday, with chances of sporadic showers in the east and afternoon showers in mountainous areas across the country, CNA cited Wu as saying. He added that a slight temperature rise is then expected across the country.

Another weather front, along with another wave of northeasterly winds, will arrive on Thursday and last through the daytime Friday. Wu predicted cooler temperatures and light rain for the north as well as occasional showers for the east and central mountainous regions.

Intermittent drizzles are expected for the north and coasts from Friday night to Saturday, but little drought relief can be expected in areas south of Taoyuan, Wu added.
