Sunny National Day forecast for most of Taiwan

Taipei, Oct. 10 (CNA) Sunny weather is expected in most parts of Taiwan on Tuesday, the last day of the four-day National Day holiday weekend, because of a drop in the amount of moisture in the atmosphere, the Central Weather Bureau said.

There are chances of showers, however, on Taiwan's northern coast and eastern regions, as well as the eastern part of the greater Taipei area, according to forecaster Tsai Yi-shan (蔡宜珊).

Daytime highs on Tuesday are forecast to reach 33 degrees Celsius in the greater Taipei area and eastern Taiwan, and 36 degrees in the areas between Hsinchu and Tainan, Tsai said.

From Wednesday to Sunday, the weather will turn rainy in northern and eastern Taiwan due to strengthening northeasterly winds and the influence of a tropical disturbance near the Philippines, she said.
