According to Shanghai Daily, the “fog” alert was elevated to level red today, the highest of the three levels available for “fog” alerts. It was so bad it caused major traffic disruptions, particularly at Pudong International Airport, where 3,500 passengers were stranded until visibility rose above 50 meters. By 7:16am, the “fog” had started to clear, but that didn’t stop Shanghai from still looking dreary and gross for the rest of the day.
And while most of this “fog” is supposed to dissipate enough for you to see your neighboring buildings tomorrow, so too will the spate of warm weather. Temperatures are expected to drop to a range of between 8 and 13 degrees, with rain and cloudy skies.
