A woman walks in a cool shower at the Bund in downtown Shanghai yesterday. The low temperature fell further to 18.6 degrees yesterday, against a low of 19.8 degrees on Saturday. Rain is expected again tomorrow and Wednesday and the high will hover between 21 and 22 degrees with lows of 17 to 18 degrees, forecasters said yesterday. However the mercury is forecast to climb back to about 25 degrees toward the end of the weeklong National Day break that draws to an end on Friday.
