Sunny skies expected in northern Taiwan Monday

Taipei, Oct. 9 (CNA) The weather in the greater Taipei area and other parts of northern Taiwan will be sunny on Monday, as the northeasterly winds have weakened, according to the Central Weather Bureau.

Daytime highs of 31-32 degrees Celsius can be expected in those areas, while in areas between Hsinchu and Taichung temperatures are likely to soar to 36 degrees around noon, CWB forecaster Chu Mei-lin (朱美霖) said. She warned that people engaged in outdoor activities in those areas should stay hydrated and take precautions against sunburn.

In eastern Taiwan, the weather will remain unstable due to a tropical depression east of the Philippines, Chu said.

In the days ahead, from Wednesday through Sunday, the weather in northern and eastern Taiwan will turn unstable again, with significant rainfall caused by the tropical depression as it moves across the South China Sea, she said.
