Taipei, April 13 (CNA) The mercury will drop by approximately 9 degrees Celsius in northern Taiwan Monday as a frontal surface approaches, the Central Weather Bureau forecast Sunday. The day-time temperature will stand at around 23 degrees Celsius in northern Taiwan, the bureau predicted, saying that with the approach of the frontal surface, the northeast monsoon will be accelerating. On Sunday, the mercury rose to 32.9 degrees C at noon in Taipei, the highest that has been recorded in the capital city since the beginning of the year. The weather bureau also predicted showers in some areas of the northern and northeastern parts of Taiwan on Monday due to the monsoon. The unstable weather, however, will not last long, the bureau forecast, saying that after April 16, the temperature is expected to rise to 30-31 degrees C in the north and 27-28 degrees C in the east.
