Weather to cool down again for last day of holiday
Shanghai basked in the sun from time to time on Friday after experiencing a rainy Tomb-Sweeping Day on Thursday, but it was still windy and cold under the influence of a cold front.
The highest temperature was around 16 degrees Celsius on Friday, a little higher than on Thursday.
Saturday, the last day of the three-day holiday, will be sunny but windy, and a little colder than on Friday, with a temperature of between 7 and 13, forecasters said.
But the weather will warm up on Sunday as people head back to work after the holiday.
It will still be cold in the morning, but the mercury will rise to about 19 degrees at its highest during the day.
The temperature will continue to climb next week, with the lowest temperature returning to over 10 degrees, and a high of between 24 and 26 degrees.
The city is also under the influence of floating dust coming from the north, with the AQI reaching 322 at noon, the most serious pollution in recent days.
But with the dust moving on, the air quality in Shanghai is also improving. The AQI decreased to 111 at 6pm and will fall below 100 tomorrow, according to the Shanghai Environmental Monitoring Center.
