CNATAIPEI, Taiwan -- A cold front passing over Taiwan is likely to bring downpours over the weekend, while another wave of cold air mass could send the mercury plunging next week, the Central Weather Bureau said Saturday.

The bureau said significant rainfalls are expected in northern and northeastern Taiwan until late Sunday, with temperatures ranging from 13-20 and 15-24 degrees Celsius in the northern and southern parts of the island, respectively.
The rainy weather pattern could ease up from Monday, forecasters said, but a cold air mass is forecast to bring daily lows across the island, down by some 2 degrees.
An even stronger cold air mass could start affecting Taiwan from Wednesday to Friday, when low temperatures could hover around 11 degrees in northern Taiwan, the bureau said.
The weather could be at its coldest between Thursday and Friday, the bureau said, but added that by then clear skies are likely across the country.
