Hot and sunny weather in Chongqing lasts because of subtropical high.
Many people wonder why the "neighborhood" Chengdu is disturbed by rainfall, but hot and sunny weather sustains in Chongqing. The weather expert says that the rainstorm in the Sichuan Basin is caused by the sufficient water vapor transport provided by the Southwest Monsoon and the constant movement eastward in the high altitude, which coordinates with the medium and minimum-altitude shear line. And because of the stable subtropical high, the rainfall system is "obstructed" and can’t continue to move eastward to Chongqing, so it only is over the Sichuan Basin with sustained effect, forming days of heavy rain. Many areas of Chongqing are always controlled by subtropical high, which makes weather hot and sunny. There may be thermal convection weather like short-term thunderstorms and winds in the local areas after noon.
Meanwhile, weather expert notices that thunderstorms or rains have occurred in parts of Chongqing. In addition, during the period of sustaining high temperature with less rain, the risks will add in the fields of sunstroke, forest fire and production safety accident. So the citizens and related departments should improve preparedness. (Translated by Jiang Yuling, Fathom Language Limited)
