Taipei, June 21 (CNA) Influenced by a southwesterly airflow, rain is forecast across Taiwan Thursday, according to the Central Weather Bureau (CWB).

Persistent rain is expected in central and southern Taiwan, while residents in northern Taiwan should be aware of occasional showers, the CWB said.

It will be partly clear in eastern Taiwan, although thunderstorms can be expected in the afternoon, according to CWB forecaster Kuan Hsin-ping (官欣平).

The weather conditions will become more stable from Saturday due to a strengthening Pacific anticyclone, the CWB said.
