Enjoy the last few remaining hours of sunny days and clear skies. All that is going to end TODAY, if the weatherman is to be believed, with the arrival of a typhoon and a tropical storm now brewing in the Pacific and heading our way.
Via Shanghai Daily:
The maximum temperature will stay at around 34 degrees Celsius today but drop over the next few days. Tomorrow will be cloudy and overcast with showers and a maximum temperature of 32 degrees. The showery weather should last to the weekend when temperatures will drop to 31 degrees.
“This week, under the influence of the currents of the tropical storms, Shanghai’s fine and hot weather should turn to showery,” Zhang Ruiyi, a chief service officer of the bureau, said yesterday. “The major rainfall and gales should occur from August 2 to 4 and the city will have a relief from the heat.
“Meanwhile, with the influence of both Saola, a typhoon, and Damrey, a strong tropical storm, the city’s coastal areas should have some serious showers and gales from August 1 to 4.”
Saola, the ninth typhoon this year, had slowed on its northwest approach to coastal regions of southeast China but was expected to strengthen over the next two days.
Damrey, the 10th strong tropical storm of the year, had reached the sea southeast to Japan and was heading northwest but it was unlikely that it would hit the city directly, Zhang said.
