Lows of 10 C forecast for north over Spring Festival

Lows of 10 C forecast for north over Spring Festival

2024-02-06

Cold weather is in the forecast as Taiwan prepares to start the seven-day Lunar New Year holiday. A strong cold air mass will sweep in starting Wednesday, sending temps dropping below 10 degrees in the north on Friday and Saturday. Rain can also be expected in all parts of Taiwan. Sunny skies are due to return only next Tuesday or Wednesday – at the end of the festival break.

Forecaster
The coldest period will be on Lunar New Year’s Eve and the first day of the Lunar New Year, when there could temps below 10 degrees. This will be most likely in the northern and central parts of the country. From the evening of Feb. 7 to Lunar New Year’s Eve, there will be a chance of rain across Taiwan. The atmospheric moisture will be relatively high as temperatures fall. So in the upper half of the island, at altitudes of 3,000 meters or above, we could see snow pellets, rime, or snow.

The Central Weather Administration says the incoming air mass could bring rime or snow to mountainous regions. If you’re going home to an outlying island, keep an eye out for ferry disruptions, as the forecast calls for strong waves and winds. At the end of the holiday, thick fog could threaten returning flights.

春節冷吱吱! 明天冷氣團南下 除夕.初一北部低溫探10度

2024-02-06

週四就開始春節七天假期,天公卻不作美。氣象署預估,強度接近強烈冷氣團的冷空氣,週三就會南下,週五、週六北台灣低溫下探10度,全台會先濕冷再轉乾,等到下週二、三要收假了,才可能迎來好天氣。

“氣團最冷的時間大概就是除夕到初一的這兩天,有可能出現十度以下的區域,目前機率比較高的,大概是北部或是中部局部地區。7號的晚上,然後小年夜到除夕,這段時間全台各地都有下雨的可能,那水氣也是比較多,那這段期間溫度也正在下降,所以我們預估可能在中部以北,3000到3500以上的高山,如果溫度跟水氣有配合的話,可能會有一些下霰、霧淞,或是也不排除有一些下雪的機率。”

氣象署不排除這波大陸冷氣團,可能達到強烈下限,山區地面有望結冰。離島民眾也要注意,因為目前預報,返鄉尖峰可能遇上大風大浪,導致船班停開;收假潮又可能碰上濃霧,飛機停飛。想回家過年一趟,得時時掌握天氣資訊。
