Beijing sees longest dry spell since the 70’s

According to Beijing's climate observatory, the Chinese capital has not seen precipitation of 0.1 mm or more on any of the past 115 days. As of Wednesday, its the longest dry spell in 47 years.

An article on xinhua.net explains how the previous longest dry spell was between October 1970 and February 1971, when the city experienced a 114-day rainless streak.

Beijing has seen plenty of cold fronts this winter, but there has been a lack of moisture in the atmosphere, making it difficult for snow to form.

The Beijing Meteorological Service reported that the city is forecast to see sunny to overcast weather without marked snowfall and extreme low temperatures during the 7-day Chinese Lunar New Year holiday that started this Thursday.
