Don't get fooled by the temperatures these days. Despite the hotness, we still have a long way to go before we officially welcome the next season. Actually, the cold front has sneaked upon us and, as we experienced quite spectacularly today, will bring temperature fall and downpours, reports Shine.
The temperatures during the past weekend's Qingming holiday offered civilians a sip of summer. The mercury kept climbing and even surpassed 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) on April 7, which is the hottest day of the city in 2019 so far. In consequence, locals put on their light clothes and turned on their AC.
That being said, the warm weather has come to an end, as a cold front from northern China arrived in Shanghai today, resulting in dramatic change. To begin with, the suburban area of the city has been enclosed by heavy fog, triggering a yellow alert from the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau.
Starting from this afternoon, rainfall, thunderstorms and strong wind visited the city and caught many civilians off guard. It is estimated that the highest temperature will take a nosedive and amount to merely 15 degrees Celsius tomorrow (59 degrees Fahrenheit). Check the sudden climate change below (VPN off):
Based on the forecasts of The Weather Channel, the temperatures won't return to 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit) until Saturday. If it's any comfort, after today, the rainfall won't make a comeback in the foreseeable future. Here's a glimpse of the weather in the upcoming days:
