A strong cold front will influence Hangzhou tonight, bringing a sharp drop in temperature and showers, weather forecasters said.
As a result, the temperature will fall by 8 degrees Celsius from a high of 35.9 degrees yesterday to a high of 28 degrees on Saturday. Showers or thunderstorms will occur tomorrow.
Yesterday marked the 51st high-temperature day this summer and the maximum temperature will remain around 35 degrees today.
Hot weather and intermittent rains have resulted in high humidity and made Hangzhou residents feel stuffy these days. But the cold front will bring some cool relief as the maximum temperature falls to 31 degrees Celsius.
