Forecasters predict moderate temperatures over the long weekend (2014/04/03)
Good weather is expected for Children’s Day and Tomb Sweeping Day. Apart from scattered showers in the north and east, holiday goers can look forward to a comfortable long weekend.
The weather front bearing down on Taiwan brought an unusual site this time of year: snow on Yushan.
Thursday morning marked the second time in as many days that it snowed on Yushan. Snow fell for an hour and a half, bringing accumulated snowfall since Wednesday to 1.7 centimeters.
But the weather front will soon weaken, causing moisture in the air to decrease.

Instead, tolls will be lifted between midnight and 5 am, and carpool restrictions will be in effect for the first time on National Freeway No. 5 between Yilan and Hualien.
