There will be occasional showers and maximum temperatures will reach 34 degrees Celsius today and tomorrow, sources from Shenzhen Meteorological Observatory said yesterday.

Although Maria, the eighth typhoon this year, won’t bring direct rain and wind to the city, the observatory said the city will experience high temperatures between today and Thursday due to the impact of the outer stream of the typhoon. The observatory reminded residents to take precautions against the summer heat and reduce outdoor activities.

The weather will be cloudy with more rain starting Friday.

Maria is expected to strike Fujian Province tomorrow, whipping up gales and high waves. It will bypass or brush northeastern Taiwan early tomorrow before reaching Fujian, where winds of up to 37 meters per second are expected in coastal areas with waves of up to 6 meters.

All fishing boats are ordered to return to harbor by noon today, and all personnel on offshore fish farms are required to return to land by 6 p.m.
