Beijing Basks in Spring One Week Ahead of Time
2006-03-19 13:17:49    Xinhua.net
Beijing will probably usher in spring one week earlier than usual, as the weather report predicts the average daytime temperature will top 10 degrees Celsius throughout the coming week.
According to meteorological standards, spring is in the air when the average daytime temperature is above 10 degrees Celsius for five days in a row.

Despite the strong wind that swept the capital city on Saturday, Beijing's meteorological department has forecast no significant temperature drops in the coming days, the Beijing-based Star Daily reported on Sunday.

The metropolitan newspaper said Beijing's average temperature is by far one or two degrees Celsius higher than usual, as very fewer cold currents have hit the city in the recent week.

The latest weather report says it will be clear on Sunday and Monday and the maximum temperatures are expected to hit 18 and 19 degrees Celsius respectively.

But the meteorological department has also warned the citizens to keep warm in the morning and at night because the minimum temperature will hover around four.

Spring is relatively short in Beijing as in most years, it becomes warm enough only toward the end of March or even in early April, but turns blazing hot by early June.
