Beijing endures one of the coldest December days on record – Snow flies in Shanghai

Bitter cold will continue to have a firm grip on eastern Asia through at least this weekend, forcing residents to bundle up. This will also lead to snow opportunities. A mild autumn and start to December came to a bone-chilling end as bitterly cold air reached Beijing and northeast China on Thursday. The cold air quickly pressed southward, encompassing much of eastern China and the Korean Peninsula by Friday. Friday was one of Beijing’s coldest December days on record as temperatures were held to just shy of 6 below zero Celsius (21 F). Biting winds created dangerously lower AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures of 18 below zero C (zero F).
