Are you feeling stuffy these days? Well, it may be the last stand of the heatwave, as the mercury is predicted to take a nosedive this weekend, reports Shine.
Earlier this week, the temperature returned to 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit), resulting in the return of smothering weather despite the end of Sanfu. In addition to the heat, scattered thunderstorms are also forecasted for the following days.
However, things are about to change quickly. Starting from Saturday, as a result of a new cold front from the north, the temperature is expected to hit a low of 20 degree Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit) and a high of 26 degrees Celsius (78.8 degrees Fahrenheit). Get ready for a temperature roller coaster ride, as we slowly move on from summer. Here’s a glimpse of the weather forecast for the coming days:

It seems that autumn is indeed approaching. The meteorological definition of autumn requires the average temperature of the city to sit below 22 degrees Celsius (71.6 degrees Fahrenheit) for five consecutive days. Last year, Shanghai entered autumn on October 11. Will we welcome the season earlier this year? Let's wait and see.
