Catching some rays on the Bund

A man soaks up the sun on an artificial beach on the Bund yesterday, which was the hottest April 26 on record in the city. Temperatures reached 33.2 degrees Celsius, said the Shanghai Meteorological Bureau. It said days with the mercury creeping past 30 degrees are not rare in April as the city usually experiences some ups and downs in spring temperatures. "High temperatures occur in April," said Man Liping, chief service officer of the bureau. "For example, in 2004, the mercury hit 33.5 degrees Celsius on April 22." Today is forecast to be showery with the high expected drop to 23 degrees, the bureau said. The low should remain at 16 degrees. Tomorrow should turn cloudy and more rain is expected at the weekend.
