On Sunday, the high will bounce back to 11 degrees with a mixture of sun and clouds.
Shanghai citizens were treated to a meteorological phenomenon known as a “wall cloud” yesterday morning. The Shanghai Meteorological Bureau said the dense black cloud was due to northeasterly winds meeting a cloud system that had formed out at sea.
Yesterday’s air quality index remained under 50 for most of the day, deeming it “perfect” by official standards.
The concentration of PM2.5 particles in the air was mostly under 25 micrograms per cubic meter, the safe level set by World Health Organization.
