Taipei, July 19 (CNA) Taiwan is expected to experience a rainy week starting Monday under the influence of a weather system from the southwest, the Central Weather Bureau said Sunday.

From Monday to Thursday (July 20-23), central and southern Taiwan will be hit by heavy showers and occasional thunderstorms, the bureau forecast.

Other parts of Taiwan will also see showers or thundershowers but on a smaller scale and for shorter periods, the bureau said.

The wet weather will bring temperatures down somewhat from a recent heat wave, when the mercury routinely rose as high as 36 degrees Celsius.

The bureau expects temperatures to range between 24 and 33 degrees around Taiwan in the coming week.

Though the weather will cool down a little, people residing in central and southern Taiwan should take precautions against possible flooding caused by sudden downpours, said the bureau, which expects the wet and cooler weather to continue until next Sunday.
