Greater Heat arrives with heatwave

2024-07-22 21:04 Last Updated At:21:37

"Greater Heat," the 12th solar term in traditional Chinese lunisolar calendars, arrived in China at 15:44 on Monday.

Greater Heat is the hottest of the traditional 24 solar terms.

The 24 solar terms, consisting of 12 major solar terms and 12 minor solar terms, were created thousands of years ago by the ancient Chinese to guide agricultural production.

During the Greater Heat, the average temperature across China is likely to reach 22 degrees Celsius and the average maximum temperature is about 34 degrees Celsius.

Temperature above 35 degrees Celsius becomes frequent and there are often temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius.

This year, national average temperature around the Greater Heat is between 32 and 36 degrees Celsius, said Song Yingjie, chief meteorological services specialist of China Meteorological Administration, at a press conference in Beijing on Monday, adding that heatstroke prevention and cooling are important.

"According to this year's weather forecast, regions like central, east, northwest and southwest China, including Sichuan and Chongqing, are likely to experience periodic high temperatures. Under relatively prolonged weather of high temperatures, it is necessary to take precautionary measures to prevent heatstroke and lower the heat for construction workers and primary and middle school students who will take tours in their summer vocation," said Song.

On Monday morning, Shanghai Meteorological Service issued an orange alert for high temperature, with many parts of the city seeing their maximum temperatures exceeding 37 degrees Celsius.

Hot weather is to persist in the following two days, said the service, adding that maximum daily temperatures are all above 35 degrees Celsius over the period.

Also on Monday, the meteorological service of Hangzhou City, the provincial capital of Zhejiang in east China, issued a red alert for high temperature. Data showed that the maximum temperature in downtown Hangzhou reached 40 degrees Celsius.

Authorities reminded the public to take emergency measures to prevent heatstroke and to avoid staying outdoors.

From Wednesday, Hangzhou will see a round of rain, which is likely to ease impacts of heat waves.
