Heatwaves are predicted to clean northern China in the following two weeks
July 6, 2022: -Heatwaves are predicted to clean through northern China in the coming two weeks, with over 250 million people predicted to grapple with temperatures that exceed 40 degrees Celsius in a few regions.
For almost a week, the regions of Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, and Ningxia, and the provinces of Hebei, Henan, Gansu, and Shaanxi, will experience temperatures of over 40 C Fang Xiang, deputy head of the National Meteorological Center (NMC).

Drought such conditions are expected to affect crops in Shandong, Anhui, Henan, Shaanxi, and Gansu, Fang warned.
