The weather station is situated in Taipei&#39;s Beitou&nbsp;District, and therefore is not only the first snowfall in two years on Yangmingshan, but also for the city of Taipei.</p>  <p>As today is the peak of a cold surge that has been battering Taiwan over the weekend and as water vapor is still plentiful in the air from constant rains, conditions are ripe for snowfall on mountainous areas above&nbsp;1,000 meters today in northern Taiwan.&nbsp;</p>  <p>In addition Taipei City, Taipei&#39;s Tamsui District, Keelung, Hsinchu, Taoyuan&#39;s Xinwu District, and Dongji Island all set record low winter&nbsp;temperatures of between 6 and 7 degrees.&nbsp;Meteorology expert and Tzu Chi volunteer Peng Chi-ming&nbsp;(彭啟明) on his&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/chiming.peng">Facebook page</a>&nbsp;said that the current cold surge will last until Wednesday.&nbsp;</p>  <p>Peng said that water vapor will gradually decrease in northern Taiwan in the coming days, but another cold surge will approach over the weekend. As for the intensity of the new cold front, it is yet to be determined, but Peng said it is likely to be similar to the current cold surge.&nbsp;</p>  <p>Video of snow falling on Yangmingshan&nbsp;at 9 a.m. this morning taken at the Anbuyi&nbsp;weather station:</p>  <p><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="333" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/fhI-TA_8Ydo" width="592"></iframe></p> </span>               <p><a href="https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/3356151">新聞來源</a></p>
