Strong cold wave in China records minus 53 degrees – “no snow” first snow in NY – Bloomberg

Widespread cold spells hit China last week, with temperatures set to record lows on Friday, the country said.

Temperatures in Mohe, a city in northern China’s Heilongjiang province, dropped to minus 53 degrees Celsius on the same day. Local weather officials posted on their official social media accounts. The lowest temperature ever recorded in China was 52.3 degrees Celsius in 1969.

The cold spell is expected to continue this week, according to the China Meteorological Administration, with temperatures continuing to drop in parts of Jilin province, dropping as much as 16 degrees Celsius over the next few days. Eastern Yunnan, a popular tourist destination known for its warm winters, is forecast to drop below zero on the 25th. The average temperature in January last year was about 3-14 degrees Celsius.

Just months ago, a severe heatwave in China led to rolling blackouts and a temporary shortage of water in vital rivers for commerce. Last August’s average temperature was 22.4 degrees Celsius, the highest since China began keeping full climate records in 1961.

New York’s ‘no snow’ record set to end in 25 days

In New York City, which has been snowless for days, snow is expected during the morning commute on the 25th. The city hasn’t had any measurable snow cover this season, but up to two inches of snow is expected, according to National Weather Service forecaster Brian Ramsey.

Given the warmer temperatures, snowfall is expected to last for a short time and be melted by rain. “It’s too warm, so there won’t be any snow left,” Ramsey said.
