TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Summer has arrived, and with it, warmer weather will largely prevail around the nation over the next week, though a southwest monsoon environment will also bring showers and the occasional thunderstorm, according to meteorologist Wu De-rong (吳德榮).
Highs of 34 degrees Celsius are forecast for the coming seven days up and down the country, particularly from Thursday (July 1) onward. For the most part, the north will be warmer than the south.
預計台灣未來 7 天的最高氣溫將達到 34 攝氏度，特別是從周四（7 月 1 日）開始。 在大多數情況下，北部將比南部溫暖。
From Monday onward, the "Twin City" (雙北, "double north") of New Taipei and Taipei will experience mostly sunny and cloudy weather. Compared with previous weeks, showers in the afternoon are less likely, though rain is expected Saturday (July 3), according to the Central Weather Bureau's seven-day forecast.
從周一開始，新北和台北的“雙北”將迎來晴多雲天氣。 與前幾週相比，儘管根據中央氣象局 7 天的預報，預計週六（7 月 3 日）會下雨，但下午陣雨的可能性較小。
