TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — High temperatures, rainfall, and cloudy skies are forecast for Taiwan in the coming week.

The Central Weather Bureau (CWB) has issued a Yellow Signal alert (daily maximum temperature reaches 36 degrees Celsius) for Pingtung County, Hualien County and Taitung County, in effect from Monday morning into the afternoon.

CWB forecaster Lin Ding-yi (林定宜) told CNA that weather for the coming week can be divided into three phases: High temperatures everywhere in the country on Monday and Tuesday as the weather front moves north, rainfall across the country on Wednesday and Thursday as the front approaches, and scattered rain showers or thunderstorms in central, southern, and southeastern Taiwan from Friday to Sunday (June 17-19).

Lin said that Monday and Tuesday would likely be the hottest days in the coming week. Temperatures in the west of the country and northeast will possibly reach 31-34 C.
