Taipei, March 18 (CNA) Sunny weather has been forecast across Taiwan on Sunday as northeasterly winds have weakened, according to the Central Weather Bureau.

Daytime highs throughout the country will reach above 25 degrees Celsius, with the greater Taipei area and central and southern Taiwan to see temperatures climb even higher to around 28-30 degrees, the bureau forecast.

Afternoon showers are expected in some mountainous areas and there will be long waves along the coast in northern and northeastern parts of Taiwan as well as Hengchun Peninsula and Matsu Island, it said.

Despite warm and comfortable weather lasting through Monday, the bureau expects the mercury will drop to 11 degrees in regions north of central Taiwan on Wednesday due to the arrival of a cold front.

Another cold air mass will approach Taiwan on Thursday and bring temperatures down to 11-13 degrees in the early morning and at night in regions north of central Taiwan and the northeastern part of the country, the bureau said.

It added the cold weather is expected to last through Friday morning, but the mercury is expected to rebound starting daytime on Friday.
