Temperatures were predicted to have dropped to possibly between 13 and 14 degrees Celsius in Northern Taiwan and between 15 and 16 degrees in other areas by late Sunday, and areas north of Central Taiwan could see a low of 11 degrees on Monday night, the bureau forecasted.
The approach of this dry, cold air mass is also expected to ease the rain, which began in Taiwan early on Sunday due to the passing of a front, the bureau said.
Temperatures are expected to return to a relatively warmer level from Jan. 15 as the cold air mass weakens, but the approach of another wave of a strong cold air mass from China on Jan. 16 is likely to bring the mercury down again from Jan. 16-19, it said.
The bureau said that temperatures could reach 10 degrees on Jan. 17 and 18 in Northern Taiwan, when the continental cold air mass is expected to be at its strongest.
