A Strong cold air swept across China and the impact will be felt in the next two days, with fog or haze weather affecting North China, Huanghuai, Jianghuai, and other areas. The maritime areas of the Bohai Sea, Yellow Sea, and East China Sea will also experience fog or haze conditions that could impact maritime navigation.
Starting from the 13th, strong cold air is expected to affect the country from west to east, prompting the Central Meteorological Observatory to issue blue warnings for strong winds. The winds are expected to reach levels 5 to 6 in some areas, with gusts reaching levels 7 to 9.
The western part of the country, particularly northern Xinjiang, is expected to experience heavy snowfall. This could have a significant impact on transportation and tourism in the region, as well as pose a risk for natural disasters such as melting snow, avalanches, and falling ice.
The cold wave affecting most areas of the country is expected to result in a temperature drop of 6 to 10°C, with some areas experiencing a drop of up to 12°C. Land wind force is expected to reach levels 4 to 7, with gusts reaching levels 7 to 9.
Poor atmospheric diffusion conditions on the 13th led to light to moderate haze and severe local haze in central and southern North China, Huanghuai, northern Jianghuai, and Guanzhong in Shaanxi. However, the conditions are expected to improve and the haze is expected to dissipate by the 14th.
Detailed forecasts for the next three days include snow in northern and eastern Inner Mongolia, Heilongjiang, and Xinjiang, as well as rain in eastern Jianghuai, northern Jiangnan, southeastern Guizhou, and northern Guangxi. Light to moderate rain is expected in certain areas, and strong winds are forecasted in Inner Mongolia, Northeast China, northern Hebei, and the Shandong Peninsula, among others.
The coming days will bring additional snow, sleet, and rain to various regions, affecting local conditions and potentially impacting transportation and activities such as agriculture and tourism. Residents are urged to stay informed and take precautions to stay safe during the upcoming weather events.
