Taipei, Jan. 28 (CNA) Low temperatures are expected throughout Taiwan in the coming days as a strong cold air mass approaches Sunday night, followed by another later in the week, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said.

The cold wave will be at its strongest next Friday or Saturday, and likely affect Taiw an through next weekend, with lows in regions north of central and northeastern Taiwan forecast to fall to nine or 10 degrees Celsius, and to 12-14 degrees for the rest of the country, she said.
