Taiwan with new national record for May: +40,3°C after months of drought




After months of persisting drought, Taiwan hasn´t seen any break from severe heatwaves, but oppositely, extremely hot and dry weather has on 14. May 2021 a peak, in form of all-time May national record for the country.

In southeastern parts of the island, temperature reached +40,3°C, what is more than during record year 2004.

In last days, +39,9°C was measured in northern Philippines and +34,0°C in Hong Kong, what are too extremely high values.

About drought crisis in Taiwan we have informed during Spring 2021 in series of articles /https://mkweather.com/taiwan-year-without-typhoon-one-of-the-worst-droughts-in-100-years/; https://mkweather.com/heatwaves-and-drought-in-hong-kong-and-taiwan-all-time-april-temperature-record-and-microchip-crisis/; https://mkweather.com/taiwan-the-worst-drought-in-73-years-extreme-2021-mk//.

Drought brought in Taiwan "an year without a typhoon", significantly limited water consumption and supplies and threatened important hi-tech industry, agriculture and tourism.

In "neighboring" China, Japan, Korea or Philippines, however, early monsoon period has started, with rains, storms and tropical storms in the south /https://mkweather.com/before-a-cold-front-40c-after-cold-front-snowing-extreme-shots-from-deadly-storm-china/; https://mkweather.com/extreme-storms-hit-china-while-japan-reports-the-2nd-earliest-arrival-of-monsoon-season-in-history/; https://mkweather.com/tropical-storm-crising-hits-philippines/; https://mkweather.com/superyphoon-surigae-and-its-surprise-for-korea-and-japan-tropical-temperatures/; https://mkweather.com/the-strongest-april-typhoon-in-history-supertyphoon-surigae-category-5-winds-315-km-h-devastated-palau//.

Forecasts for southern and western Taiwan are still very dry, while north and east should hit some storms until early Summer 2021.

Maximum measured temperature in Taipei for May is +38,2°C, while for July +39,7°C, therefore it is some chance for the next temperature records, in case of persisting drought until mid-Summer 2021.

Seasonal forecasts (for Summer 2021) for the island are hot and dry and the worst drought since 1940s should continue.
