Temperature in China’s Inner Mongolia drops to -46.9 °C (-52.4 °F)


Severe cold wave sweeping through northern China dropped the temperature in the city of Hulunbuir, Inner Mongolia autonomous region to -46.9 °C (-52.4 °F) on December 23, 2021. The cold snap continued over the Christmas weekend and into the new week.

While ice fog reduced visibility to less than 100 m (328 feet), those brave enough to venture out were driving at a snail's pace because of icy roads, SCMP reports.

Temperatures in other parts of northern China plunged to -40 °C (-40 °F), shrouding cities in white smog and prompting major supermarkets to increase supplies of necessities, including fruits and vegetables.
