Mercury rises to record-high 35.6 degrees Celsius in Taipei

TAIPEI--Temperatures in Taipei reached 36.6 degrees Celsius Sunday, the highest recorded in the city this year, the Central Weather Bureau said that day.

The high was recorded at 12:37 p.m., following days of hot and sunny weather, the result of a Pacific high pressure system.

It surpassed the year's previous high of 36.2 degrees recorded three days earlier, said the bureau, adding that temperatures in the coming few days could surpass 36 degrees in northern Taiwan.

The mercury also hit 35.6 degrees in northeastern Taiwan's Yilan at 12:38 p.m., breaking the year's record in that area.

Meanwhile, temperatures reached around 34 degrees in central Taiwan and 32 degrees in southern Taiwan.

The bureau said some mountain areas around Taiwan could see thundershowers in the afternoon over the next two days, while some rain could be expected in lower areas of central and southern Taiwan later in the week.
