Hangzhou will have fine weather most of this week except a rainy Wednesday, local forecasters said.
The maximum temperature will jump to around 15 degrees Celsius later this week while the low will be around 7 to 8 degrees. Today is cloudy with temperatures between 5 to 14 degrees.
Though the temperature is rising, the weathermen said it is still too early to say that the city has entered the spring. March is the month when winter gives way to spring.
The arrival of meteorological spring was around March 17 from 1981 to 2010. It mainly depends on temperature.
The meteorologists say that if the average temperature has stayed above 10 degrees Celsius for five consecutive days, then they can announce the arrival of spring.
