Taipei, Jan. 5 (CNA) The cold air mass currently influencing Taiwan will ease up on Monday to give way to warmer weather and improved air quality for about three days before another cold air mass arrives, the Central Weather Bureau forecast Sunday. The bureau forecast temperatures of between 10 and 12 degrees for northern Taiwan and lows of 10 degrees in central Taiwan and 12 degrees in southern Taiwan on Sunday night. Once the cold air mass leaves the island on Monday, temperatures will warm up to a high of 22 degrees in northern Taiwan and between 22 and 26 degrees in central and southern Taiwan, according to the bureau. The fair weather will remain until the evening of Jan. 9, when the bureau predicts another cold air mass will bring temperatures to a low of 10 degrees in northern and central parts of Taiwan along with occasional showers. The Environmental Protection Administration said Sunday that the air quality in areas around the main island of Taiwan and its offshore islands is expected to improve in the coming days due to a decrease in transboundary pollution. The air quality in northern and central Taiwan already showed signs of improvement on Sunday and was expected to get better in southern Taiwan starting on Monday, the administration said.
