Winter “late” in Chongqing, but probably arriving this week
Recently, Chongqing has seen a drop in temperature.
CHONGQING(CQNEWS)--Recently, with scattered rain, various areas in Chongqing have seen an obvious drop in temperature. Some netizens said, “I finally feel the physical attack of winter and the quilt has finally become a clammy piece.”
Temperature drop and rainfall bring fresh air
With the temperature drop and rainfall, the air in Chongqing has become fresh again. At 09:00 on January 11th, the AQI reading in the main urban districts reached 39, which was excellent.
According to the seven-day weather forest by China Weather Network Chongqing, from now on to next Monday, the main urban districts will be dominated by overcast and rainy weather, with a high temperature of less than 10℃ most of the time. We will probably see the lowest temperature since the second half of 2016.
Chongqing is expected to truly enter winter this week
According to the rules of meteorology, it winter begins when the average daily temperature is lower than 10℃ for five consecutive days, and the first day of those five days signals the start of winter. From November 1st, 2016 to January 10th, 2017, most areas in Chongqing hadn’t entered the meteorological winter. Chongqing generally enters winter around December 14th, and winter only came late in 1953-1954 which fell on January 11th and in 1988-1989 on January 10th in Chongqing since 1951. Therefore, this year’s “late” winter ranks third in the history of Chongqing.
Seen from the latest forecast, from January 11th, the daily temperature in most areas of Chongqing will basically maintain at 10℃ or lower, and the true winter is expected to arrive. (Translated by Tang Zhiqiang, Fathom Language Limited)
