Taipei, Jan. 20 (CNA) A cold spell could start to bring temperatures down across Taiwan from late Monday, causing areas as far south as Chiayi likely to see daytime lows of 8 degrees Celsius over the next three days, the Central Weather Bureau said. Lows on Tuesday could range from 8 to 11 degrees in the north, 9 to 13 degrees in central Taiwan, and 8 to 14 degrees in the south. The chill could prevail until Thursday, when daytime maximum temperatures across the island are expected to edge up 1-3 degrees, forecasters said. The weather is set to be mostly dry, with limited showers likely in eastern Taiwan and mountainous areas in northern Taiwan. Farmers are reminded to take care for their crops ahead of the cold surge, while the general public should bundle up and be cautious of the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning from gas heaters, the bureau said.
