TAIPEI (TVBS News) — With the influence of Pacific high pressure, Taiwan is experiencing predominantly sunny and hot weather, with temperatures often soaring between 36 to 38 degrees Celsius, warned Wu Der-rong (吳德榮), adjunct associate professor at National Central University's Department of Atmospheric Sciences, on Monday (June 24).

He emphasized the need for the public to safeguard against sun exposure and heatstroke. The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF, 歐洲中期天氣預報中心) projected on the evening of June 23 that a "stagnant front" would linger from South China to the Yangtze River basin through June 30, according to Wu.

Despite this, the "subsidence effect" from the Pacific high isn't strong enough to fully prevent afternoon thunderstorm activities near mountainous areas. As a result, brief, local showers or thunderstorms might occur, posing risks of severe thunderstorms with lightning, strong winds, and heavy rains.

On Monday morning, temperatures ranged from 24 to 37 degrees in the north, 24 to 38 degrees in the central areas, 25 to 37 degrees in the south, and 24 to 37 degrees in the east.
