The arctic cold monster is not retreating – after engulfing a part of Russia, China has also received a warning: such a temperature has never been here before

An all-time record for the country’s cold was set here – in Heilongjiang province, the northernmost part of China, the temperature dropped to 53 degrees Celsius, the lowest temperature in the country since 1969, reports CNN.

British meteorologist Scott Duncan reported on the social network that such cold weather is extremely rare in China.

According to S. Duncan, the previous cold record in China was recorded on February 13, 1969 and was 52.3 degrees below zero. Meanwhile, on January 22 this year, the Jingtao Automatic Weather Station (AWS) recorded -53.0 degrees Celsius.

A cold record was also set in Russia more than a week ago. On January 15, a temperature of -62.4 degrees Celsius was recorded in Tongulach, Republic of Sakha (now Russia).

These data were provided by the Czech meteorological measurement services company “Ventusky”. According to meteorologists, this is the “lowest temperature ever recorded” at the Tongulach station and the coldest temperature recorded in Siberia since 2002.

According to meteorologists, the coldest average cold ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere (in a populated area) was recorded in 1933. February 6 Omyakon (Republic of Sakha), when the temperature dropped to -67.7 degrees Celsius.

Another record was achieved in an uninhabited area – at the Klinck measuring station, Greenland. Here in 1991, on December 22, a cold of 69.6 degrees was recorded.
