Spring has brought a blizzard to the door of many in northern China, trapping them inside.

The snowstorm over the last couple of days has covered large swathes of Jilin, Heilongjiang, and Inner Mongolia with localities raising red alerts for snowfall.

Some residents of Qiqihar in Heilongjiang province say that they haven't seen so much snow in 20 or 30 years.

Flooding in south and central China has killed more than a dozen people and forced hundreds of thousands from their homes, the government in Beijing said on Thursday.

About 228,000 people have been forced to seek emergency shelter due to flooding since June 2, the country’s Ministry of Emergency Management said.

China – Worst flooding in at least 71 years
« Reply #2 on: August 21, 2020, 07:08:24 AM »
Some claim it is the worst on record. See video.

Authorities predict that the flood will peak on Monday afternoon.

It is estimated that the water level of Chengdu’s Jintang County, which is located on the upper reaches of the Tuo River, will exceed the “safe level” by 3.85 meters and maximum peak discharge will climb to 8,200 cubic meters per second. This will set a new record at least since the founding of communist China 71 years ago.



Judging from the historical records of the Jintang Sanhuangmiao Hydrological Station since 1949, the highest flow rate recorded was 8,100 cubic meters per second in 1981. If it reaches 8,200 cubic meters per second this time, it means that the flood peak will set an all-time record, reported news.sina.com.

Beijing – Coldest December day in 42 years

Residents astonished at the sudden temperature drop.

__________

30 Dec 2020 – Apart from the resurgence of the coronavirus that has confined many Beijingers at home, local residents now have another reason to stay indoors – the bitter wind and extreme cold as the city saw its coldest recorded December day in 42 years at -26 C (-14.8F).

Residents were astonished at the sudden temperature drop.


 
“The forecast for Beijing is even colder than the North Pole,” a netizen on China’s Twitter-like Sina Weibo said early on Wednesday, posting screenshots of weather-tracking apps which read -13 C in Beijing and -3 C at the North Pole.

As a cold air mass swept across northern China and Beijing since Tuesday, temperatures plunged from an average daily high of 2 C to maximum highs of -6 C and lows of -13 C, some of the coldest December days in a decade.

Sea Ice Affects Ships In North China Ports
« Reply #4 on: January 21, 2021, 05:59:39 PM »
emperatures across China have plunged to their lowest in decades, boosting demand for power and fuel to historic highs in the world’s largest energy consumer.

12 Jan 21 – “The sea ice situation is more severe this year than the same period in previous years,” said Wang Jun, a professor specialising in transport issues at Dalian Maritime University.

Expansion of sea ice makes it tougher for ships to berth and discharge at key energy product import terminals along the coast of northern Bohai Bay.

“It could impede sailing and docking for vessels, no matter how big they are.”

Sea ice stretches 45 to 55 nautical miles at Liaodong Bay and 10 to 20 nautical miles at Bohai Bay, close to levels that could prompt temporary bans on shipping.

Last weekend, the marine safety bureau in northern Hebei sent several tugboats to the aid of vessels, , trapped in sea ice that was one metre (three foot) thick, to help bring them to Caofeidian and Huanghua ports, state television said. The vessels included LNG tanker Clean Planet and coal bulk tanker Agia Eirini Force

China's vegetable prices hit record highs due to historically cold winter
« Reply #5 on: January 29, 2021, 05:31:02 PM »
Asia's energy prices aren't the only commodity to have reached record highs this winter, the chill of solar minimum has also driven China's fresh vegetable prices to unprecedented levels.

A lingering "dip" in the jet stream has seen Arctic air funnel into southern Asian since early-December, 2020. The resulting cold has hampered the efforts of farmers ACROSS the continent, including in China, where on Monday the nation's wholesale price index for agricultural products -developed by China's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs- surged to a new all-time high of 139.

In addition, the sub-index dedicated solely to vegetables climbed even higher, to 145, also a new record. Among the 28 types of vegetables monitored by the index, the average price surged to 6.2 yuan (96 US cents) per kg on Monday, the highest since the data became available 10 years ago. The price of cauliflowers and cabbages almost doubled compared to a year earlier.

"In the beginning of 2021, we had three cold waves. This type of cold and frosty weather has a big impact on the production and growth of vegetables, their maturity periods and yields," said a spokesman for Baishazhou Agricultural and Non-staple Products Marketplace, a major wholesale market in Hubei province.

"Some vegetables have frozen to death," the spokesman continued, "even the vegetables growing in greenhouses may freeze badly, such as red cabbages and lettuces. The quality of a number of water spinach has dropped with declining supply.

Early-season heat records obliterated in China
« Reply #6 on: February 22, 2021, 07:20:59 PM »
https://www.weatherzone.com.au/news/early-season-heat-records-obliterated-in-china/533537

Prior to this year, Beijing's highest February temperature on record was 19.8ºC. On Saturday, the city broke this with a top temperature of 20.8ºC.

However this new record only lasted one day, with the city soaring to 25.6ºC on Sunday.

The weekend's heat was mind-blowing for this time of year.

Beijing's average maximum temperature during February (a winter month) is only 4ºC, based on the 30-year period from 1961-1990. This makes Sunday's top of 25.6ºC a staggering 21.6ºC above average for this time of year.
