Taipei, June 17 (CNA) All parts across Taiwan are likely to see heavy rain or extremely heavy rain on Sunday, due to the effects of a stationary front and a system from the southwest of Taiwan, the Central Weather Bureau said.

The effects of the two systems will increase chances of rain in all parts of Taiwan, CWB forecaster Lin Ting-yi (林 定宜) said. The southern and eastern Taiwan are likely to see heavy rain or extremely heavy rain later that day, while central and northern Taiwan and some areas in Yilan and Hualien counties will receive heavy rain, he said.

Lin also warned of strong winds and lightening and flooding in low-lying and coastal areas and forecast that the current unstable weather will continue into Tuesday, when rain will ease.
