Taitung sees 37.3 degrees as Foehn winds sweep city

TAIPEI -- Eastern Taiwan saw surging mercury Thursday due to hot and dry Foehn winds sweeping down from the central mountain range, according to the Central Weather Bureau.

Taitung City recorded temperatures of 37.3 degrees Celsius at 10:57 a.m., surpassing the year's previous record seen a day earlier at 36.7 degrees.

Foehn winds are warm, dry winds that blow down the sides of mountains into valleys.

In May 2004, Taitung saw the mercury reach 40.2 degrees with the same weather pattern.
