Taipei, Nov. 21 (CNA) The clement weather that has lasted for just over a week in Taiwan is expected to continue until Thursday evening before seasonal northeasterly winds pick up again, the Central Weather Administration (CWA) said Tuesday.

CWA forecaster Huang En-hung (黃恩鴻) told CNA that the partly sunny weather would continue across the island until Thursday, with daytime temperatures in northern Taiwan between 26-28 degrees Celsius and lows of 19-21 degrees.

The mercury in some areas is likely to be lower due to radiation cooling, Huang said, adding that there would be sporadic rain in eastern and southeastern regions.

Starting Thursday evening, however, the weather will see changes as northeasterly winds strengthen, including increased rain at nighttime, Huang said, and the unstable weather is expected to last until Saturday.

According to Huang, during the impact of the winds, temperature lows will be between 17-18 degrees across Taiwan, while the highs will reach 21-22 degrees in the north, 22-23 degrees in the east, and 26-27 in the central and southern areas.
