Recommended Posts

Shanghai is set to record its lowest temperature in over 30 years and possibly break its record low of 14F recorded in 1977.

The great heating divide, which traces the Huai River and Qin Mountains near the latitude 33 degrees north, dates from the 1950s. Back then, China started to install centralized systems for residential areas with assistance from the Soviet Union. But China was facing an extreme energy shortage in those years, and Premier Zhou Enlai suggested the Qin-Huai line, a well-known demarcation between north and south, as a cutoff point.

Guess it goes to show why so many of their plants have a good deal of cold tolerance!

Shanghai will survive.

My dad was stationed in that city in the Korean war, and always loved it.

I was going to start a post on this topic since late December, when the first cold wave hit, but I've been waiting to get the temperature records in first.

I see Beijing has dropped to at least -19.6C. That's -3F. The last time the city was that cold was in 1966.

I’ve been looking at The Weather Channel app’s temperature map and I’m surprised to see how cold it is in China sometimes. Even south of the Tropic of Cancer it seems to get quite chilly a lot more than I would think, according to the map. I just took this screenshot, I think it is 10:34 PM there at the time.

Even Bangkok has a record low in the 40s.  Most of the tropical areas that are part of the Asian continent occasionally see lows in the 50s.  I always had in my mind that places like Da Nang, Vietnam were always steamy hot, but Wikipedia shows its record low as 45 degrees F.  Surprising!

Here are some of the lows posted thus far this season for some locations in East Asia:

Beijing -19.6C / -3F. Same latitude as Washington, DC.

Shanghai -7.8C/ 18F. Same latitude as Waco, Texas.

Wuhan -8.5C / 17F. Same latitude as Austin, Baton Rouge, and Jacksonville, FL.

The above temps were lower than those experienced during the cold wave of 2016 and during any other time during the 21st century.

Tokyo -2.4C / 28F. Same latitude as Las Vegas and Charlotte but this is actually rather cold for Tokyo, which is on the Pacific, quite some distance away from the Asian landmass.

I see, according to climate data, that Manaus, which is equatorial, lowland tropical rainforest, saw 53.6F in the 1989.
