Just for the record, CWB says sunny, 18 to 28 degrees expected.


It was supposed to be sunny today…

Thanks @Icon for another totally off prophecy of disaster and destruction :smiley:


Well umbrella was not used but it was pretty windy so the jacket protected me from the chill.

Do not disregard the wisdom of your elders, young paduan.


Looks gloomy but… no drop of rain, which is good news. And that is in Nangang. Must be bright and sunny in central Taipei.


Alas it is not bright and sunny in central Taipei (at least in my part of it).

The dreary weather today was something of a surprise, as I saw the winds shifted to winds from the south, which usually bring loveliness to our beloved capital city. Not today!



You are not freaking kidding I remember one winter I was living in neihu and it was so wet water was dripping off the ceiling I literally had an umbrella when I was sitting in bed it was extremely horrible
Like two hundred percent humidity


In my many years on the rock it had basically rained every day almost all day in January February March April and all of May

June July August September October you get nice weather but you may get almost daily afternoon thunderstorms or sometimes typhoons

Nov the rain comes in earnest along with a bit of cold fronts then Indian summer in December

And then it’s repeat

This is Keelung we are talking about , Taipei is a bit better

I hear things may have changed since I left the rock in 99 or has it .?


To summarize, expect rain everyday.


So we are having a preview of summer with high temps predicted for tomorrow and Thursday… Friday -as par for the course, it will be cold and rainy on the weekend. Both apps and CWB agree on this.



As Aristotle said , “ One swallow does not a Summer make” … or similar words . :blush:


Yes, but it still sucks. :sunglasses:


Yilan right now. Summer status: delayed


The geckos were so noisy last night.


I was trying my best to elevate the discourse . I should know you better by now. Tis a hopeless task . :wink:


I know you are not keen on creepy crawlies, but I like the “Sub-Tropical” sounds . Except when trying to sleep on the East coast with a cacophony of Toads. Gosh , they are loud.:open_mouth:
Taichung getting warmer

Geckos are OK, it is spiders, especially plate sized ones, I am not keen on… oh and millipedes.

O swear geckos have a short lifespan in my home but it is not on purpose.

You should see the noise in the old country, and I mean from nature. Crickets, owls, all kinds of critters. Even monkeys. And that is in the suburbs.


But I’m guessing the only noise would be from you when you see them :blush:

Beautiful weather, bad air.


Indeed. This was all the news ranted about this morning. Bad air quality all over the island…followed by ads for air purifiers.
