Taipei, Sept. 8 (CNA) High temperatures are expected next week, with mostly sunny skies throughout the day despite occasional afternoon showers, the Central Weather Bureau said Saturday.

Daily maximums are expected to range between 32 and 34 degrees Celsius across Taiwan, while higher readings are expected in the greater Taipei area due to the urban heat effect, the bureau said.

Afternoon downpours might ease the high temperatures, the bureau said, adding however that people in mountainous areas should take precautions against sudden thunderstorms through next Friday.
