Drier spring in forecast, with no respite for drought-stricken areas (2021/02/23)

Forecasters say they don't see any respite from the drought in the near future for Central and Southern Taiwan. Dry conditions are likely to linger from March to May. Meanwhile water levels have declined to perilous lows in some parts of Taiwan, with stricter water rationing measures to start in Chiayi and Tainan on Thursday.

The drought keeps worsening. Water levels have dropped below 15% capacity at Tainan’s Tsengwen Reservoir and 40% at Chiayi’s Lantan Reservoir. There’s little relief in sight, as a dry spring is in the forecast.

There is now a much greater chance of a drier season, rather than a wetter one. That likelihood has significantly increased. Our prediction is that rainfall will be at normal or below-normal levels. Currently, the water levels at reservoirs in Taoyuan and south of Taoyuan are on the low end. We’re asking people to conserve water.

The latest La Nina weather event is slowly receding, but its effects will persist over the spring season. The Central Weather Bureau forecasts normal or below-normal rainfall from March to May. There are no signs of storms on the horizon, meaning the drought will persist in the short term. Temperatures will be near normal values.

The start of spring actually also marks the beginning of the foggy season in Taiwan. Also, in March, there will still be cold fronts hitting Taiwan, so we’ll still need to wrap up warm.

As for the 228 Memorial Day long weekend, it will get off to a soggy start on Saturday under impact of northeasterly winds, with sporadic showers predicted in the north and east. But cloudy to fair skies will prevail Sunday and Monday nationwide. In Central and Southern Taiwan, the dry spell is expected to drag on, and residents are asked to conserve water.

今年春雨偏少~正常 短時間旱象難解

氣象局預測,3到5月的春季氣候,受到反聖嬰現象影響,降雨依舊偏少到正常,恐怕將讓中南部的水情更加吃緊。因為部分水庫的蓄水量已經降到兩成以下,期盼民眾能節約用水。

水情吃緊,台南曾文水庫蓄水量跌破15%,嘉義蘭潭水庫也只有四成。但偏偏老天不幫忙,春季依舊少雨。

“降雨偏少比偏多的機率,有明顯增加、明顯比較多的情況,我們估計(雨量)是偏少到正常的機會比較大。因為目前桃園以南的水庫,蓄水量都是偏少的情況,呼籲民眾節約用水。”

即便反聖嬰現象逐漸減弱,但依舊影響春季氣候,氣象局預估3到5月降雨量偏少到正常,近期也沒有訊號顯示,有春雷的跡象,短時間內旱象恐怕難解。至於溫度則是接近正常值。

[[氣象局預報中心主任 呂國臣]]
“進入春季之後,其實也是台灣進入霧季的時候。另外,在三月依然還是會有冷氣團到台灣,保暖的措施還是要持續。”

至於即將到來的228連假,除了27號受東北季風影響,北部、東半部有短暫雨,其餘兩天都是多雲到晴的好天氣,中南部集水區依舊少雨,提醒民眾還是得節約用水。
