Many people say this is the hottest year in recent decades. Now has entered the late September, with the infiltration of cold air, China also ushered in a large-scale cooling. According to the data of the Meteorological Bureau, this is the most obvious cold air with the largest cooling rate since the second half of this year. The temperature in some areas has been about 4 degrees lower, and some areas even have snowflakes at the end of September.
The first snowfall of this year in Shennongjia, Hubei Province
Today, the cold air continues to move southward. Although the subtropical high has just retreated, the cold air meets with warm and humid water vapor in the south of China, which also causes a series of rainfall, which is unavoidable in the southeast of South China. In some areas, the rainfall is particularly fierce and lasts for a long time. In some serious places, it has begun to snow. According to news media reports on September 17, Shennongjia scenic spot in Hubei Province has ushered in the first snowfall of this year.
From the video we can see that white snow particles and water droplets fall from the sky. Although the intensity of this snowfall is relatively small and the duration is very short, for Shennongjia in Hubei Province, this snowfall really came earlier, two months earlier than last year.
Snowfall in Inner Mongolia
Many people are very curious to see here. How strong is the cold air this year that makes Hubei snow? In fact, in the process of this cold air southward, some areas in the north also began to float snowflakes. Last week, Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia, ushered in a wide range of snowfall, which accumulated on the ground, the thickness of about two centimeters. Seeing such a situation, some people are not only worried. Will this year be a cold winter? Is it related to La Nina?
Is it a cold winter this year?
From the geographical point of view, Shennongjia and Chifeng have relatively high altitude, the higher the altitude, the lower the temperature, the greater the probability of snow. Although La Nina has been formed, but according to the current situation, it has no obvious impact on our country. Nowadays, the global temperature continues to rise, even in winter, it is difficult to have the original cold winter again. Therefore, scientists speculate that even if La Nina will enter China, in the global warming environment, the cooling rate it brings is not even faster than the warming. Therefore, China will have a warm winter this year, and will not repeat the mistakes of 2008.
Of course, although La Nina has been formed, scientists still need to pay close attention to which countries it will enter and what kind of impact it will have. What do you think?
