Jun 12, 2018 Entertainment Comments Off on Expert warns of ‘disastrous’ rain Thursday through Sunday
Taipei, June 12 (CNA) The Central Weather Bureau on Tuesday issued a forecast for extremely heavy rain across Taiwan Thursday through Sunday due to a weather front and moist southwesterly air currents, while a meteorologist warned that the weather conditions during that period could be disastrous.
CWC forecaster Lin Po-tung (???) said the converging weather front and seasonal currents will bring heavy rain to central and southern Taiwan, starting Wednesday with afternoon showers.
In western parts of the country, heavy or extremely heavy rain can be expected, he said, forecasting 80-200 millimeters of rainfall within 24 hours, starting Wednesday.
From Thursday through Sunday, the entire island will be affected by the arrival of moist warm southwesterly winds, which will cause extremely heavy rain, Lin said.
While the rain is expected ease on Monday during the Dragon Boat Festival, there will still be a chance of heavy downpours that could cause flooding in low-lying areas, Lin said.
Meanwhile Wu Der-rong (???), professor of meteorology at National Central University, warned of "disastrously torrential rain" that may cause landslides, rockfalls, mudslides and flooding if the converging weather front and seasonal winds linger over any area.
